That's right and that's what happened in this case. I've heard that even if you don't have a Drivers Licence you could still get a ticket based on any ID that you are carrying

"Drivers are responsible for ensuring that passengers under 16 years of age are using the seat belt or an appropriate child car seat.

Police officers may request that passengers who appear to be at least 16 years of age provide their name, address and date of birth. These passengers may face a fine for not using or wearing a seat belt properly. "

It is passenger who got the ticket not the driver. The ticket was not issued to vehicle. Right?

The passenger can make some excuse and likelihood of getting the fine reduced.

Contest it - you got nothing to lose ... who knows what happens before the trial ?? If nothing else happens , you cannot get more penalty than the original ticket .....

Either the ticket may not come up for trial ( some times they have a back log ) OR the prosecutor may offer you a discount OR he may with draw the case OR worst case - you can still plead guilty and request the Judge to take a leneient view ... he may reduce the charge ...

I don't see no harm in contesting ....

What Web2000 says about Police Offiers not needing evidence is wrong ..In fact there needs to be undoubtable evidence to convict any one .... and a Police Officer's word is not enough if it is contested .

A vital point in such a case can be -- was the vehicle in motion when the Police Officer saw you not wearing a seat belt ... OR was the vehicle stopped when the Officer approached you and caught you not wearing a belt ??

Its a valid argument that you took off the seat belt immediately upon stopping the vehicle to turn around or ease yourself before the Officer approached you .... this happened in our case when our child was crying .... the Officer flashed at us -- when he appraoached us he asked my wife as to why she was not wearing a seat belt and she explained that she had just taken it off when the car stopped to ease the child .... and that was true and valid ....

As a best practice , I always wear a seat belt ...... even when in India and one is available .... Remember the air bag is still the secondary restraint system ... the primary under all cases is your seat belt .

Police Officers have enough experience to make the statement undoubtable.
