You can be pulled over for not wearing your seat belt in Florida after June 30th

A new Florida law was passed that will allow police to pull you over if you are not wearing your seat belt. Before June 30th, when the law takes effect, police had to have another reason before stopping your car, such as
broken tail light
expired tag
speeding or
window tint
When this law is able to be enforced, police will have yet another reason to stop your car and ultimately search it if they say you acted nervous, the police say they smelled pot, or they claim to see drugs in plain view in your car.
