Kentucky "child safety" law

The State of Kentucky, yesterday, passed a new “child safety” law which allows police to now pull over motorists who they suspect aren’t wearing seatbelts. Roadblocks solely for seatbelt violations are not allowed, but there is no longer the need to have a primary violation, such as speeding or a broken taillight, to which the seatbelt violation then follows.

The bill also now requires those under the age of 16 to wear helmets when riding all-terrain, or other 4-wheeled, vehicles—even if for farm work.
