Indiana Buckles Up

May 3, 2007

Now in Indiana, virtually anyone in any type of vehicle – in any seating position – will be required to buckle up, the Indystar reports.Legislation passed recently by the Indiana General Assembly closes the last loophole in the state's mandatory seat-belt law that exempts more than a million motorists with vehicles registered as trucks from buckling up.But it also prohibits police from using roadblocks to check compliance. The bill, which awaits the governor’s signature, takes effect July 1.Seatbelt violators could be fined $25. According to the Indystar, previously the law exempted more than 1.4 million vehicles registered as trucks, including SUVs and vans whose owners paid additional fees to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to get a truck plate.
