It's the law

Minnesota seat belt law says that drivers and passengers in all seating positions must buckle up or be in the correct child safety seat. A seat belt ticket can cost more than $100. When transporting a child under age 8 or shorter than 4 feet 9 inches, use a child restraint appropriate for the child's height and weight.

Wright County Public Health has car seats available free of charge for families with low income or who cannot buy their own car seats for their children.

Additionally, children and pregnant women enrolled in Medical Assistance may be eligible to receive a free car seat through their health insurance provider.
