Seat Belt and Child Restraint Ordinances

City of Chesterfield seatbelt and child restraint ordinances are published in the City Code under Chapter 18, sections 33 and 34. The occupants of motor vehicles carrying ten or less passengers must wear a properly adjusted and fastened safety belt. Children under the age of four must be properly secured in a safety seat. There is an exception for Postal Workers in mail trucks delivering mail.

Missouri state law is somewhat more restrictive. Those additional regulations may be found in the Revised Statutes of Missouri (RSMo.) 307.178 and 179. Missouri statutes are available on the Missouri General Assembly website.
