At Craft Law Offices, we are happy to not only represent clients filing for bankruptcy, but also clients who have received traffic violations. A common traffic infraction that many of our clients receive is a citation for not wearing their seat belt. We encourage all of our clients to wear their seat belt, not only because it is the law, but also because it is the best choice you can make for your safety.
According to the CDC, “Wearing a seat belt is the most effective way to prevent death and serious injury in a crash.” In fact, over half of people who are killed in car crashes were not wearing their seat belt at the time of the crash. Furthermore, wearing a seat belt can reduce your risk of death during a crash by 45% and your risk of serious injury by 50%. That means that just by the simple act of wearing your seat belt when you drive, you could be saving your life.
In the state of North Carolina, if an officer observes that you are not wearing your seat belt, they can pull you over and issue you a ticket for this traffic violation. As the driver of the vehicle, you are also responsible for all passengers under the age of 16 to have their seat beat on while you’re driving. These tickets can result in fines and court costs.
When it comes to driving safety, wearing your seat belt is one of the most simple and effective ways you can ensure your safety in a vehicle. It can also save you from the hassle of dealing with a traffic violation.
