It’s a ridiculous law and at $250 per violation its obviously not about safety.
I never thought I would see the day where a police officer would enforce such an immoral law.
Agreed! Complete bullsh*t.
It’s a revenue generator that’s it plain and simple. Cops are the new tax collector.
I got one of these tickets on a 20 mph dead end road.

Call a cop for a break in.
They won’t even come out to make a report.
I remember back in 2002, one of my coworkers, a hardcore libertarian, got one of those notices (not a ticket but it was when our law was new then) at a checkpoint and complained (rightly so) on hoe we are becoming a police state.
Or hit and runs either.
No money to be made on B&E’s and hit and runs.
I’m SOOOOOOOOO glad my tax dollar$ pay for such service!!!
I got one when three witnesses in the car, the judge said that she had to take the word of the cop no matter how many witnesses I presented.
The only thing I could do is give a reason the police man might be wrong. I wasn’t allowed to say he was a liar, but everyone who was in the car with me knew the truth.
great - guess I’ll be seeing a bunch of these in my court next month...
A friend of mine was burglarized.
They stole his guns and stole some of his wife’s dainties.
They called the Po Po and they told them to call their insurance company.
I bet if we passed an initiative in every state that said all ticket revenue has to go to pay for people who walk on their emergency room bills, there would be zero enforcement of these laws.
I reckon you will.
Sound like legal B.S. but who ever pushes a traffic ticket to appellate court?
I got one that will be hard to top..
I got one in the parking lot of a private establishment, my car was running, in it’s parking spot in park.
Judge didn’t care. just asked “where you in the car with out your seat belt on?” well ya... “pay the fine” But but but “you broke the law! pay the fine!”
then and there I knew it had NOTHING to do with safety of ANYONE. It had everything to do with collecting $ for the county/city/state.
That’s just stunning...especially since guns were involved.
