KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

On Saturday, the fine for not wearing a seat belt in Kansas will raise to $30, from the $10 it has been since June of 2011.

This change was passed during the legislative session as part of Senate Bill 89.

Kansas has had a seat belt law since June 2010.

Prior to 2010, it was a secondary violation for the drivers or front seat passengers not to be wearing their seat belt. 

This means drivers could not be pulled over for not wearing seat belts.

In 2010, the requirement was also added that adult passengers in the backseat of vehicles must also be buckled, but this is still a secondary violation.
