In an effort to provide the patient with seat belt safety and insure the comfort during seatbelt use, VadGuard developed and patented the cushion with the U.S. Patent Office. We are based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and observe seat belt laws. Mandatory seat belt laws exist in 49 states, with New Hampshire being the only exception. Of these 49 states, 17 have primary laws that enable law enforcement officers to ticket motorists based solely on an observed seat belt violation. As a result, about 60 percent of the U.S. population is covered by primary seat belt laws. The remaining states allow issuance of citations in conjunction with other vehicle violations.
