N.D. House kills another effort to change seat belt law


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s House has rebuffed another attempt at changing the state’s seat belt law.

The House voted 54-38 to kill the proposal to allow police to pull over drivers if they see them not wearing seat belts. The fine would be $50.

The Senate approved the bill earlier.

North Dakota’s current law says drivers and front-seat passengers have to wear seat belts. But a driver can’t be ticketed for it unless he or she is pulled over for another traffic violation first.

North Dakota’s present seat belt law was approved by the 1993 Legislature. Advocates of the primary-enforcement measure have been rebuffed repeatedly in the Legislature.
