Topeka Kansas will receive an $11.2 million check from the federal government for adopting a primary seat belt law.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Deputy Secretary Ronald Medford will present the check to Gov. Mark Parkinson on Tuesday.
The seat belt measure was approved by the state Legislature earlier this year and signed into law by Parkinson.
The law requires that every occupant in a car must wear a safety belt and allows law enforcement to stop a car for a violation by anyone in the front seat and by anyone under the age of 18.
