Teens Have the Lowest Rate of Seat Belt Use

Teens Have the Lowest Rate of Seat Belt Use –blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, as compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use. CDC reports that in 2011, only 54 percent of high – school students reported they always wear seat belts when riding with someone else. In California, Teens 16 or older may not “be a passenger in a motor vehicle on a highway unless that person is properly restrained by a safety belt.” (Cal. Veh. Code 27315(e).)

Some states such as Arizona and Nevada, only allow officers to issue a seatbelt ticket if the driver also committed some other offense. California law however makes not wearing a seatbelt while driving a primary offense. Meaning an officer can pull someone over for failing to use a seatbelt (or failing to have their passengers wear seatbelt) whether the driver committed some other offense (like speeding or running a red light) or not.

Fine for violating mandatory seatbelt laws vary depending on certain factors, but on average will cost $100 – $200 in California.  –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
