Troopers Will Ticket You For Seat Belt Law Violations Starting Monday! On Monday (May 18, 2015) the Ohio State Highway Patrol will begin a seat belt law enforcement blitz targeting drivers and passengers who are not buckled up.

Ohio Seat Belt Law May Change

Image via WikipediaThere is a provision in the Ohio Budget Bill (HB 2), Ohio's massive traffic law overhaul, that would change the current Ohio seat belt law from secondary enforcement to primary enforcement. This means that drivers can be pulled over for not wearing a seat belt without another violation being committed.

Contact your representatives and let them know you do not support this law.Contact Info: http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/search.cfm#reps_zipView House Budget...
