Inquiry:  I got a ticket for failure to wear my seat belt. I was putting my belt on before I saw him and had it on when he pulled me over… Can I fight this?

Response:  The burden of proof will be on the Prosecutor to prove to the Court that your seatbelt was not being worn.  Without yet seeing the Officer’s roadside notes at this point, it would be difficult to provide much feedback on the strength or weakness of their evidence.  Seatbelt charges are generally inexpensive charges to fight at Court given the relative cost of increased insurance rates.  If you would like to retain our representation in contesting your charge, we offer a no-cost initial review of cases via our toll-free number 1‑866‑801‑8299.
