Buckle Up for the New Maryland Seatbelt Law

Back Seat drivers buckle up.  Starting October 1, the police have the right to ticket back seat passengers for not wearing their seatbelts.  This is a “secondary” offense, meaning that the police won’t pull a car over if they notice this infraction, but if the driver is stopped for any reason, everyone in the car must have a seatbelt on.  This means that drivers can no longer carry more people in their car than there are seatbelts.
