(KSL News) The Utah Senate has narrowly passed a bill that would make failing to buckle up a primary traffic offense.

Under the bill, police could pull over a driver simply for not wearing a seat belt. Currently, police can only pull over drivers under age 19 for not buckling up. And, officers can only cite drivers 19 and older if the violation is a secondary offense.

Previous versions of the bill have been killed two years in a row.
