Florida has enacted a new seat belt law that allows police officers to pull over motorist for the failure to wear a seat belt. Prior to the enactment of the new law, a police officer could only issue a seat belt citation in conjunction with another traffic offense. Drivers, passengers, and children under the age of 18 can receive a citation for the failure to wear a seat belt. Experts believe that the proper use of seat belt can save lives and help avoid serious personal injuries.
