Jon S. Corzine pays fine for not wearing seat belt

New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine has paid a $46 (34 EUR) fine for violating state law by not wearing a seat belt while a car accident almost killed him.

Corzine met with State Police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes, Attorney General Stuart Rabner and two state police investigators Tuesday at the governor's mansion in Princeton to discuss the accident, spokesman Anthony Coley said.

As the meeting ended, Corzine asked Fuentes for a ticket, Coley said. Fuentes wrote one, and Corzine wrote a check for $46 (34 EUR), Coley said.

Corzine fractured his left thigh and broke 11 ribs, his breastbone and other bones in the April 12 accident. He was riding unbuckled in the front passenger seat when his sport utility vehicle, driven by a state trooper at 91 mph (146 kph), was clipped by a truck and slammed into a guard rail near Atlantic City.

State law requires that all front seat passengers wear a seat belt. Violators face a $46 (34 EUR) fine.
