Currently in Nevada, police cannot pull over a driver who is not wearing a seatbelt. Drivers who are pulled over for another reason and who are found to not be wearing a seatbelt can still be ticketed for failure to buckle up.
A new seatbelt bill has been introduced in the Senate which would allow police officers to pull drivers over for suspicion of failure to wear a seatbelt.
The fine for the offense remains at $25.
