About "Seat Belts (NEG)"
Affirmative plan has the federal government take away highway funding from states unless they make mandatory seat belts for back-seat passengers into a “primary” enforcement law. Under current law, seat belt use is mandatory but police will only ticket someone after the car has been stopped for some other offense (thus, it’s a “secondary” offense). Making it a primary offense means police could pull over and stop a car solely for failure to wear back-seat seat belts. AFF”s theory is that this will increase enforcement of seat belts, leading to more seat belt use, leading to lives saved.
