Seat Belt Use

Person clicking seat belt

Minnesota first passed a seat belt law in 1986, requiring the driver and front-seat passengers to wear a seat belt. The seat belt law was upgraded to a primary law 23 years later and went into effect on June 9, 2009. The law states that drivers and passengers in all seating positions must be buckled up or in the correct child restraint, regardless of age or whether riding in the front or back seat.
