Reddit question: Seatbelt ticket

Q: Hey so I just got a seatbelt ticket in LA county. Is it considered a non moving violation in the state. The officer said it was a non moving violation but online it says otherwise. Didn’t know if the laws change. Most importantly, Will it end up on my driving record?

A:  Seat belt tickets cost between $25 – $162 and carry no points if the driver and passenger are over the age of 16. If either the passenger or driver is under the age of 16 years-old then the ticket carries 3 DMV points which stay on your record for 3 years.

There are several Trial by Written Declaration defenses for a California Vehicle Code 27315(d) violation here. Given that this ticket has no point, there’s no reason not to fight this to the hilt.
