Utahs Law To Save Lives

The Law: All passengers must wear seat belts and children up to age 8 must be properly restrained in a car or booster seat.

Remember, seat belts save lives. If you or anyone in your vehicle aren't properly restrained, you can be issued a $45 citation. A seat belt fine is waived upon completion of an online, 30-minute seat belt safety course. Contact the Utah Safety Council at 801-746-SAFE (7233) or 800-933-5943 or online at utahsafetycouncil.org.
