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."
