DETROIT (WWJ) — Anytime, day or night, rain or shine, police officers can issue you a citation for not wearing your seatbelt.
In fact, the state said that recent stepped-up enforcement of seat belt regulations by law enforcement officials here in 40 Michigan counties has led to more than 13,700 traffic stops.
