Pawlenty signs tougher seat belt law
Starting June 9, Minnesota motorists can be ticketed just for not wearing a seat belt.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty has signed a bill that allows police to pull over drivers solely because they or their passengers are not wearing seat belts.
Currently, officers must spot another traffic violation before they can stop a vehicle and ticket someone for not being strapped in. The new law carries a $25 fine.
