Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has signed a stricter seat belt law for West Virginia motorists, making it a primary offense if it is not buckled.

Police can now pull over motorists if the driver or passengers aren't wearing seat belts.

Previously the driver had to be stopped for another violation first.

The fine for failing to wear a seat belt will be $25, with no court costs or points on a driver's license.
