Question:

If a front-seat passenger is found to be not wearing a seat belt, who will be fined?

A
Explaination

It is the driver's responsibility to ensure that all passengers are in compliance with the state's seat belt laws. If the driver or a front-seat passenger is found to be in violation, the driver will be fined $25 regardless of whether one or several adults are not wearing seat belts. However, the driver will be fined $25 for each child passenger who isn't wearing a seat belt or suitable child restraint.
