Seat belts are designed with one purpose, to keep you as safe as possible in the event your vehicle is in an accident. In accidents where the vehicle rolls, drivers or passengers that aren’t wearing seatbelts are often expelled from the vehicle through a window. The Florida law requires that front seat passengers must wear seat belts while the vehicle is in motion. When there are children 18 and under the the vehicle, they are required to always wear a seat belt, regardless of where they are seated.
We all understand that accidents or bouts of forgetfulness happen, especially as we rush our our busy lives. If a seat belt broke or malfunctioned and you received a seat belt ticket anyway, The Traffic Team can help!
