Why are drivers in Seattle not required to wear seatbelts when driving?

The seatbelt is not required by law in most cities, and there is no specific law that mandates it.

So, what’s the problem?

The problem with the seatbelt in Seattle is that a lot of drivers don’t know that they need to wear them, and that’s a big problem, said Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole.

The police department estimates that in the first half of this year, 2,000 people were injured in crashes in which a driver didn’t wear a seatbelt.

O’Toolle says that she has spoken with drivers about the need for the seatbelting laws.

She told Seattle’s NBC affiliate KIRO-TV, “We want people to wear the seat belt, we want to be safe, and we want our kids to be healthy, so we’re going to make it mandatory.

And it’s not a crime to not wear a safety belt.

We’re not trying to put anyone off the road, we’re just making it mandatory.”

O’Reilly says that in a lot more cities, there’s more scrutiny and fines for not wearing a seat belt.

The seat belt laws in Seattle don’t require drivers to wear it, so there’s a greater amount of incentive for people not to wear a belt, he said.

Seattle is the only city in the country that requires drivers to buckle up for traffic stops.

If you don’t wear the belt, you’re required to go through a sobriety checkpoint, and the police can stop you and put you in handcuffs, O’Reilly said.

It’s the right thing to do, but it’s going to take a lot longer than that, she said.
