X-Copper has successfully represented thousands of clients who have been charged with traffic tickets for failing to wear a seatbelt.
DO NOT JUST PAY YOUR TRAFFIC TICKET!!! Even if you think that you may be guilty!!!
Driving with an inoperative seatbelt or being charged as a passenger not wearing a seatbelt does not carry any demerit points. However, any other seatbelt infraction carries 2 demerit points against your driver’s licence. As of January 1st, 2010 the set fines for any seatbelt infraction have been raised to $200.00. Any conviction for a seatbelt infraction will remain on your driving record for 3 years.
Seatbelt infractions include the driver or passenger of a motor vehicle not wearing, or not properly wearing their seatbelt, driver not ensuring that passengers under the age of 16 are wearing their seatbelt, not occupying a position with a seatbelt, not ensuring that a child passenger or toddler is properly secured, driving a vehicle with the seatbelt removed or inoperative.
There are a few exemptions to wearing a seatbelt:
- Driving a motor vehicle in reverse
- Medical reasons (accompanied by a certificate from a medical practitioner)
- Being engaged in work that requires you to exit from your vehicle at frequent intervals as long as the vehicle does not travel above 40km/hour
