Under the Graduated Driver License Law, teens from age 15-18 are required to wear their seat belt and it’s a primary offense if they don’t, meaning they can be pulled over solely for not wearing their seat belt. Based on the 2016 seat belt survey, teen use in Missouri is only 70 percent, much lower than state (81 percent) and national (90 percent) seat belt use. Missouri has 18 schools with a seat belt usage rate of 50 percent or less.
