Seat Belt Laws

SB09-296 failed to make it through the legislature, but the bill that would have toughened seat belt laws still generated a lot of publicity on the issue. The State Publications Library has a number of resources available that address current seat belt laws as well as seat belt use among Coloradans. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment published a fact sheet, Safety Belt Use in Colorado, in 2006. Also, the Colorado Department of Transportation has issued a brochure on their Click It or Ticket campaign. Other CDOT resources on seat belt laws and usage include:

The Colorado State Patrol also has some information on seat belt use on their website. See these State Patrol links for information on seat belt laws and use:
