That’s why I’m taking it to court. It was the officers opinion the shoulder belt was not being worn correctly because I had adjusted it too loosely.
The Texas law is actually this:
545.413 Safety Belts; Offense.
a. A person commits an offense if:
- the person:
A. is at least 15 years of age;
B. is riding in [the front seat of] a passenger vehiÂcle while the vehicle is being operated;
C. is occupying a seat that is equipped with a safety belt; and
D. is not secured by a safety belt; or
(4) “Secured,” in connection with use of a safety belt, means using the lap belt and any shoulder straps accordÂing to the instructions of:
(A) the manufacturer of the vehicle, if the safety belt is original equipment;
The key word is “Secured” & instructions of the manufacturer".
I attempted to explain this to the cop but all I got was "If you don’t agree take it to court"
This is information I got from Ford Motor Co. from the owners manual for this car:
My opinion is it allows me to adjust the shoulder belt to my “Comfrot” what ever that is.

Deluxe Seat Belt System
The Deluxe seat belt system operates the same as the standard but it uses a one-way tongue and will include a comfort regulator.
ADJUSTING SHOULDER PORTION (WITH COMFORT REGUULATOR)-To relieve belt pressure on your shoulder after the belt is fastened, a shoulder harness comfort regulator has been installed in the shoulder retractor. This regulator allows you t adjust your shoulder belt to a position for a comfortable shoulder harness length. This comfort regulator works like a window shade: slowly pull several inches of shouIder belt away from your body and release.
What do you think?
@ Kerry56 , I already tried & got it with a capture program but the Audio wasn’t too good on the .qbx so it wasn’t captured too good either. Thanks for the suggestion though . The program I used was Debut Video Capture Lite.
