Senator Scott will introduce a tougher Wyoming seatbelt bill

Casper, Wy – Republican Sen. Charles Scott of Casper says he plans to introduce legislation next year that will toughen the state's seat belt law. Wyoming has a secondary seat belt law, which means a driver cannot be stopped for failing to wear a seat belt. But the driver can be fined if he or she is stopped for another traffic violation
and isn't buckled in. Scott is still working out the details of his latest effort.
The Legislature last winter rejected a bill sponsored by Scott
to increase the fine for failing to buckle up from $25 to $75.
