As we approach summer time remember its time to check the graduation schedule, and remember to make sure everyone in your vehicle is wearing a seat belt. Hawaii’s Law changed in 2013 requiring the driver and every passenger, whether seated in the front or the back seats, to wear their seat belt. Violations vary, but drivers should expect to pay up to a fine up to $112 for those who are not wearing their seat belt.
Hawaii ranks one of the best states for seat belt use, however, we still have room for improvement. According to NHTSA, if everyone in every seating position wore their seat belt at all times, we could save an additional 3 lives a year.
Keep yourself from a ticket, and make a life saving decision by making sure EVERYONE in your car is wearing their seat belt.
