Traffic Ticket Advocates have been fighting seat belt tickets successfully in the Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Markham, Aurora, Vaughan, the GTA and surrounding areas for over 25 years.
Seat belts are an important safety precaution for anyone traveling in a vehicle to wear. Risk of injury is always a given, however, failure to wear a seat belt is an offence for which the driver can be fined if they should be stopped and the police discover that the driver or any of their passengers are not wearing their seat belts.
Strapping on a seat belt is usually an automatic action when a person gets into a vehicle. However, sometimes a distraction can mean that the driver or passenger in a vehicle may have forgotten to put on their seat belt. It always seems that it is at these times that the police seem to choose to stop the vehicle. Traffic Ticket Advocates has taken on many cases like this during their many years in business. They are well versed in the best methods to use to deal with tickets relating to failure to wear a seat belt. With many successful cases behind them, let them show you why they’re very good at what they do. Don’t forget that wearing a seat belt is always the safest option and means avoiding getting a ticket in the first place. However, if it should happen, make Traffic Ticket Advocates your first call.
Seat belts are also necessary to be worn in the back seats of any vehicle. Children must be properly buckled in and those seats must be assembled and fastened properly. This will be dependent on your child’s age, weight and height if they are required to be in a car seat or a booster seat (with or without a back attached). The law is very specific on these variables as to when they will be allowed to change from car seat to booster and finally progress to not needing a booster at all. Your child’s safety is priority one. If not attached to the vehicle properly and an accident happens, there will be more than just a ticket, there will be injuries.
