Mid-Michigan Drivers With No Child Safety seat Govenor Says ‘Show Me The Money’
Have you gotten off the hook in the past when child passengers were in your car not in a child passenger seat? Not any more. Uncle Rick wants the money.Violators now can avoid up to $103 in fines and court costs if they buy a child safety seat before the court appearance date on their citation. But under a bill passed 35-1 by the state Senate on Wednesday, judges would no longer be required to waive the court penalties. Supporters say repeat offenders aren't buying car seats in good faith.
The legislation specifically addresses violators of a requirement to secure children under age 4 in a safety seat. Michigan also requires children under age 8 to be in a booster seat. The bill was sent to the House for its consideration.
The state says,'show me the money'.
