Connecticut is changing its seat belt laws
Connecticut seat belt laws are changing.
Governor Ned Lamont has signed a bill requiring anyone in the backseat to buckle up.
Right now, only those under 16 have to wear a seat belt when riding in the back.
Connecticut is the 32nd state to adopt this seat belt policy.
Police can not pull you over just for someone being unbuckled in the back seat but they can give you a ticket if you’re stopped for something else.
