New Seat Belt Law & Alabama Road-Rage Law Go Into Effect November 1st

The first law is one that many drivers can support, and it is an update to the current seat belt law. Under new law active November 1st, drivers can be stopped if passengers, even in the back seat, do not have their seatbelt fastened. Under previous law, anyone not a minor sitting in the back seat without a seat belt was only a minor offense that could be written up if the car was stopped for another reason. Now, a $200.00 fine can be levied for sitting without a seat belt in the back seat. This ticket will be issuable to the passenger if the passenger is of age and a licensed driver, or to the driver if the passenger is a minor or does not have a driver’s license. It is no new news that seat belts save lives. The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) records data that shows that nearly 15,000 people’s lives were saved by use of a safety seat belt in 2017 alone. Buckle up – it’s the law!
