I recently got a ticket for not wearing a
seat belt. I haven’t had a traffic ticket and years and am worried about my
insurance going up. Is this going to go on my record as a point? What impact does seat belt tickets have?
Each state has their
own statutes and laws surrounding points for traffic violation. Some states do
not even have point systems while most others do. Most states would not put a
seat belt ticket onto your record as a point, but some may. You would have to check
with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles to find out.
in many states, if you were cited for having a passenger under the age of 16
years old in your car not wearing a seat belt, you could be cited for as much
as 3 points that would go on your record. However, seat belt ticket costs generally adhere to different localities.
