It is common knowledge that seat belts save lives and protect drivers and passengers in the event of a motor vehicle crash. Our South Dakota lawyers at Zimmer, Duncan & Cole represent clients every day who have been in car accidents throughout the state. We know the benefits of wearing a seat belt. Not only is it important to wear a safety belt in order to protect your life, it is the law in South Dakota. But, as with all requirements, there are a few exceptions to the South Dakota seat belt law.

Under what circumstances are you not required to wear a seat belt in South Dakota?
  • If the motor vehicle was manufactured before September 1, 1973
  • If your vehicle does not have safety belts because federal law did not require them at the time it was manufactured
  • If your physician has provided a written statement regarding why you should not wear a seat belt
