According to the article, the Florida Highway Patrol plans to strictly enforce the law that makes seat belt violations a primary offense. Law enforcement agencies have been able to ticket unbelted motorists since 1986, but only if stopping them for another traffic violation, such as careless driving. According to Highway Patrol Lieutenant Chris Miller "if we do stop you, you can expect a ticket. We wont be giving any warnings." Motorists can be ticketed if either they or their front seat passengers fail to buckle up. All passengers under 18 years of age are also required to wear seat belts regardless of where they are sitting. The plenty is a $30.00 fine plus administrative and court costs.
