Question: Can you discuss some of the violations involving safety belts and child safety restraint systems in Wisconsin?

Answer: Everyone in Wisconsin is required to wear their safety belt. So for adults, whether they’re the driver or the passenger, if you have a ticket for failing to wear your safety belt, it’s a $10 violation. However, with children, it varies based on the age of the child. If the child is under the age of four, the person driving is then responsible for making sure they’re properly secured. And if they’re not, they’re facing a forfeiture of between $30 and $75. And if a child is between the ages of four and eight, then there’s two different levels of offenses. The first offense is a $10 to a $25 ticket and any subsequent offenses within three years carry a $25 to a $200 ticket.
