(KSL News) -- Safety advocates rallied at the State Capitol today to push a stiffer seatbelt law.
Utah law says if you're pulled over for an unrelated reason and you're not wearing a seatbelt, then you can get a ticket for no seatbelt.
Now there's a move to pass a tougher bill, saying you can be pulled over and ticketed simply for not wearing a seatbelt.
The bill passed in the Senate, and now it's up for debate in the House. Supporters of the bill claim nearly 200 Utahns die each year because they're not wearing seatbelts.
