2009-2010 Legislative Update concerning Seatbelts

State law requires that ALL occupants of a vehicle must wear a safety belt, regardless of age or seat location.
 NOTE: Children under 8 years old, unless the child is taller than four feet nine inches, must be restrained in a child passenger safety seat.

  If you are convicted of a misdemeanor offense involving violence where you are or were a spouse, intimate partner, parent, or guardian of the victim or are or were involved in another, similar relationship with the victim, it may be unlawful for you to possess or purchase a firearm, including a handgun or long gun, or ammunition, pursuant to federal law under 18 U.S.C. Section 922 (g) (9) or Section 46.04 (b), Texas Penal Code.  If you have any questions whether these laws make it illegal for you to possess or purchase a firearm, you should consult an attorney.
