List of measures

The North Dakota Safety Belts Referendum, also known as Measure 2, was on the June 14, 1994 ballot in North Dakota as a legislatively-referred state statute, where it was approved.[1] The measure made it a violation for a driver to operate a motor vehicle on a highway unless each front seat occupant wears a safety belt. This prohibition did not apply to farm vehicles or implements of husbandry, rural mail carriers when delivering mail or vehicles designed to carry 11 or more passengers. A violation of the law subjected the driver to a maximum fee of 20 dollars. However, the measure made these violates secondary offenses, meaning issuance of a citation for a violation of the safety belt law could only be done if a officer lawfully stopped the driver for another violation.[2]
