Idaho law requires everyone in a vehicle to wear safety restraints. Other
provisions under the law include:
- Adult violators, 18 and older, are subject to a $10
- An adult driver is ticketed for passengers younger
than 18 who are not properly restrained.
- If the driver is younger than 18 and the driver or any
occupant younger than 18 fails to wear a seat belt, court costs are added to
the fine. The $10 fine and court costs total $51.50.
- A law
enforcement officer can issue a citation solely for a safety restraint
violation, but there must be another violation leading to the traffic stop.
