Seatbelt tickets: Legal requirements for young passengers and whether a ticket can raise insurance

Seatbelt tickets: Legal requirements for young passengers and whether a ticket can raise insurance – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

Did you know that a seatbelt ticket can result in an insurance rate increase of 5.6% (on average according to MainStreet.com, Laura Adams, senior analyst for InsuranceQuotes.com).

We all know about “click it or ticket” for adult drivers, but let’s not forget the basics for younger passengers:

  • A child seat is required for any child under age 8 or shorter than 4’9.
  • Children over 8, or taller than 4 feet 9 inches, must use a seatbelt.

As for the teens… all passengers, over 16 are responsible for themselves. While the driver can be ticketed, so can the passenger teen. – blog submitted by TicketBust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
