That's exactly what i wasn't totally clear on. Thanks! I have a Jeep with a truck plate and I guess it's time to buckle up.
According to Indiana case law, passengers in SUVs with truck plates are exempt from the current seatbelt requirements. That changes when the new law goes into effect.

The state is terrible about things like trying to run a business, that's why the toll road never paid off. Private investment actualy gave the state capital to invest in the roads, something the toll road could never do. With politics involved the lotto will never pay off they way it can under private ownership.
that is really not the point, if it does not pay off, STOP IT, or LEGALIZE GAMBLING as a whole, do NOT authorized a privately held monopoly. That fly;s in the face of everything this country is support to stand for.

I have no problem with Privatization, I have a Problem with the WAY Mitch is doing it, by authorized Monopolies

Good. I wear my seatbelt every single day, but I still do not need the government to tell me what is best for myself. I am a big boy and can take care of myself. If someone doesn’t want to wear a seatbelt then they should not be forced to by an overbearing government. It is their choice and they can live with the consequences. We do not need a government to dive into our lives because they cannot do anything right. So how can they tell us what is best for us?

Ironic that you "never understood" this type of tactic, especially considering it has always been about EDUCATION. That's why they give you a MILE's worth of giant orange signs telling you to comply with the law before enforcing it with with such a nominal fine.
What a gross waste of time!!!
Anyone who drives by the 8 signs and still refuses to follow the law... he/she DESERVES a $25 ticket.
Geeesh.
Hello??? Common Sense??? WHERE ARE YOU?

Me myself and I wrote:
Last year after the double homicide in Franklin the Franklin PD had a half dozen cops running seat belt zones three days after the murders. Almost a year later the FPD still doesn't have a clue who committed the crimes. But at least I had them to make sure I was wearing my seatbelt so I would be safe when I didn't wreck my car.
It seems there is no money to be made in catching a murderer, but there is in writing tickets. Kind of "bss aackwards" I think.

I completely agree with the prioritization of officers from ticketing for seatbelts and starting to reduce crime. My friend was held-up at gun point in Broad Ripple and it took the police more than 30 minutes to respond. However, over a half-dozen officers were walking around Broad Ripple Avenue chatting or hassling those that had a few drinks. The police need to get priorities straight.

Maybe the cops will be able to 'catch' those nasty bad guys who refuse to wear their seatbelts.
I say life sentences for all of them. Maybe they will have better luck with those negligent drivers because they sure aren't catching the real crooks, you know, the murderers, robbers and rapists. And you know, I'm sure it's not about the money, right!
