Higher Fines For Not Wearing Seat Belts Is Dead
A proposal to increase the fine for not wearing a seat belt has failed this session. Members of the House Transportation Committee voted 11-2 on Tuesday to defeat the measure. Earlier in the day, the companion bill passed the Senate Finance Committee 6-4. Currently the penalty for not wearing a seat belt is 10- dollars but the legislation would have bumped that fine to fifty. Sponsors say the measure is simply to encourage people to buckle up but critics say individuals shouldn't be penalized for choosing not to wear a seat belt. (bg)
