Skip to comments.Click it or Ticket - Primary Stop Seat Belt Law - 21st May through Memorial Day

The news is that the Click it or Ticket stepped up enforcement is started on Monday.
Even if you are wearing your seatbelt, that isn't any protection against a ticket.
Police can now stop you for no other reason than they say you weren't wearing it. This is the ultimate revenue generator.
On Twitter, the propaganda is in full swing @NHTSAgov #ClickItorTicket
And, if you ticket enough geezers your dept can buy some new AR 15’s and an armored SWAT truck!
This is why I feel there ought to be citizens organizations to hold these petty courts accountable for their worst B.S., so it doesn’t rest upon one isolated victim’s sense of honor and personal resources.
But it still costs nothing to call some newspapers.
Weird thing, when I got ticketed in a 20mph zone in Texas I had all kinds of evil black fire arms openly laying out in the vehicle (I was on the way to the range)
They didn’t give a damn about that.
Some aspects of Texas beat some of the places on your list.
“Thank you for patronizing our speed trap, now have a nice day shooting.”
Personally, I'd be strongly in favor of a little vigilante action in such cases. There are all kinds of possibilities if one thinks creatively.
As they say, revenge is best served cold. No sense trying to answer a bully in exact kind as though the contest were who could be the biggest bully, and sooner or later he (usually a he) will get his. Bad but credible publicity is like the drip drip drip of rain drops, which can even wear away stone.
I got burglarized in 2007. They stole my pistol. I called the cops and waited out front. The cop pulled up screaming at me like I was coming out of the house with loot. I was standing on MY OWN front step waiting for them for crying out loud. What burglar would do that?
I had one pull a gun on me in my driveway in a case of mistaken identity.
I had one beat me up for grins to impress a rookie.
I could go on.
Sometimes the constabulary can be clueless dummoxes who have to be humored.
They have no jurisdiction on private property. You don't even need a license to drive on private property. Their [already thin] claim to have the jurisdiction to require you to have a license, register your vehicle, etc., hangs upon the idea that the roads are "theirs".
Yea!they were going at it in Connecticut this afternoon on a very busy street.No strobes on to warn drivers they were there.Putting themselves and the drivers of the vehicles in danger because they were walking in the roadway waving people over.
Fortunately for my wife and I we were already wearing our seatbelts.We do that as a routine.So we were not stopped.
I still hate what I think is harassment.Espechially when these same Police Officers should be out enforcing more important laws.
Which are almost indispensable when you want to break into the wrong house and shoot somebody's grandma, not to mention every third dog you see.
Sadly, another appellate court issue, or at the very least reason to get an attorney or otherwise research the actual traffic statutes. Some traffic statutes apply to private property that is open to entry and exit by traffic on the public roads. Others don’t. Where I am here, there is a sign at the exit to a nearby post office parking lot urging people to buckle their seat belts. Maybe Federal property is an exception to state and local rule.
They are supporting these safety campaigns
These guys are even running competitions to see who can get more of you http://www.floridalel.org/Apply-For-a-Challenge/2012-CIOT-Florida-and-National-Report/CIOT-Instructions
Nah, I've got them a couple times here in AZ, it's like $80 depending on the jurisdiction. AND, it's not even a primary stop here!
I don’t disparage them having these things so long as they don’t ask me to pay for it or prohibit me from the same.
I wanted to buy this..
no, people have got tickets riding their lawn mowers drunk on their front lawns.
The reason is they say if they weren’t there you could potentially go onto the road.
