Every body, every seat, every time!
The Minnesota Seat Belt Coalition works to reduce deaths and injuries on our roadways by increasing seat belt use
through education about issues and legislation.
It's coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council in partnership with
the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety.
The Minnesota Seat Belt Coalition includes individuals and organizations from across the state—businesses, health care providers, emergency responders, law enforcement officers, community organizations, parents, insurance representatives, auto dealers, crash survivors and others. Learn more about passenger safety facts and
seat belt stories in the news.
Minnesota's seat belt use law requires everybody of all ages in every seating position in the vehicle to be buckled up or riding in an approved child passenger safety restraint. Also, law enforcement officers can stop and cite drivers and passengers who are not buckled up. This primary enforcement provision gives the seat belt use law the same status as every other Minnesota traffic safety law.
