Wearing a seat belt can save your life. Beginning this Wednesday, the state of Maryland will have a new seat belt law

which requires the driver of a car and all passengers in the front seat to wear seat belts. Children between the ages of four

and sixteen must wear a seat belt if they are riding in the front or back seat. Young children under the age of four and

weighing less than 40 pounds must be in child safety seat.

Under the new law, police officers can stop cars if those inside are not wearing seat belts. Drivers and passengers who

do not follow the new law can be given tickets. The penalty for not wearing a seat belt is a $25 fine for adults and a $48 fine

for passengers under the age of 15. But there is a more important reason to wear a seat belt than the cost of a ticket. Out of

the 298 people killed in traffic crashes last year in Maryland, 199 were not wearing seat belts. Police officers believe that

110 of those 199 people would have lived if they had been wearing seat belts.

About 70 percent of people in Maryland use seat belts regularly. State officials hope that number will be higher with

the new seat belt law. People between the ages of 18 and 29 are the least likely to wear seat belts. People in their thirties are

the most likely to.
