Mississippi's seat belt law could be changing.

 Everybody in a car would have to buckle up in Mississippi- under legislation that's on its way to the governor.  Current law says only those in the front seat and any children in the car must be restrained.  The Highway Patrol says requiring those in the back seat to buckle up will protect them and keep those passengers from being thrown around in a collision possibly injuring or killing somebody else in the car. 

If the law is passed, a driver could be fined $25-dollars for each unbelted passenger, though it wouldn’t be listed on a person’s driving record.
