Buckle Up Illinois

July 7, 2011 at 11:58 am (Traffic)

Beginning on July 1, 2011, if you are riding in a vehicle in Illinois, you better be wearing a seatbelt. This new law gives police officers the ability to stop the vehicle if they see someone in the backseat without a belt on. Prior to this, any adult not driving or riding in the front passenger seat was not required to buckle up. Now, fines will start at $25.

And of course this gives the police one more reason to pull over a vehicle. Good thing those tinted windows are legal, except in Chicago of course.
