Police departments, sheriff’s offices, and the Michigan State Police will conduct stepped up seat belt enforcement May 23 – June 5.
The mobilization is about saving lives, not just writing tickets, which is why we publicize the enforcement effort.
Buckling up can reduce the risk of serious injury or death by 45 percent.
Michigan has a primary enforcement law which allows officers to stop motorists who are not buckled up. The fine and associated costs for unbuckled adults is $65.
