Alaska law enforcement is cracking down on seat belt usage over the next two weeks as part of a National Enforcement Mobilization effort.
If police pull you over and you are not wearing a seatbelt, you will be given a ticket. In Alaska, the seatbelt law is a primary offense law, meaning a motorist can be pulled over just for not wearing a seatbelt.
Seatbelts are one simple way to increase road safety, especially as summer traffic kicks into full gear.
