Not wearing your seat belt will soon land you with a traffic ticket. Just before the end of the legislative session, Kansas state lawmakers passed a primary seat belt law.
It means officers can pull you over if they see you driving without a seat belt.
Officer Terence James has been with Wichita Police for nine years, and he sees plenty of drivers who'll soon be getting tickets.
"A lot of people won't like it because they think it's their right that they should be able to make a choice on whether or not they have to wear their seat belt," says Officer James.
Most drivers who talked to Eyewitness News didn't seem to mind the new law. Marisa Moreno says she wears her seat belt all the time and makes passengers in her car wear them, too.
