Kansas gets primary seat-belt law

Belt

Gov. Mark Parkinson signed a bill yesterday that lets Kansas police stop drivers for failing to wear a seat belt. It used to be that you could be ticketed only if the cops had another reason to stop you. The feds have been offering money to states so they'll adopt so-called "primary seat-belt laws." Kansas will get $11 million for passing the new law.
