Buckle Up.  It's the law.
Buckle Up. It's the law.

Lawmakers in Cheyenne are working on a bill that would make the state's seat belt law more strict.

The Senate voted 16-13 Thursday on Senate File 51, giving preliminary approval to a bill that would allow police officers to pull over drivers for not wearing seat belts. It would also increase the fine to $75 from $25.

This week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question asks your opinion about the bill: “Should not wearing a seat belt while driving be a primary offense with the fine being increased from $25 to $75?”

Let us know what you think. Cast your vote here: http://www.sheridanmedia.com/nod..., and feel free to leave appropriate comments.

Then be sure to tune in to the Jackson Electric Open Line this Friday morning at 9:10 to hear the results, on NewsTalk 930 KROE.
