ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Police across Alaska can now stop and ticket drivers who aren't wearing a seat belt.

Before a new, tougher seat belt law kicked off Monday, police could write tickets for people who failed to wear their seat belts only if they were pulled over for something else, like speeding, expired tags, running red lights.
