Seat Belt Laws
In Arizona, using seats belts while driving is the law. The only exceptions are for persons with physical or medical disability waivers and mail carriers. All children under the age of 5 years of age and/or under 80 lbs must be in an approved child car seat while the vehicle is in motion. Each front seat occupant must have the lap and shoulder belt properly adjusted and fastened while the vehicle is in motion. If only a lap belt is installed, the lap belt must be properly adjusted, and fastened while the vehicle is in motion. A citation will be issued to the driver for each passenger under 16 years of age that is occupying the front seat and is not wearing a seat belt.
