Click It or Ticket

So when I turn 21 I can ride my bike without a helmet but when I get in my vehicle I have to wear my seat belt? It should be our individual choice on wether or not we want to wear a seat belt! The law could give a shit less about safety all they see is revenue.

How about y'all focus on the robberies and drug dealers rather than harassing us about wearing a damn seat belt.

Focusing on robberies and drugs would require real police, with real training. It also requires being motivated to do real work. The cops around here have none of the mentioned. They aren't trained, they don't care, and they just fly by under the radar by focusing on weaker prey (the speeders , seat belt violators, etc.). If you could work hard 365 days a year and capture a handful of real criminals, or sit in your car all day and pick off normal citizens that forget to click it or may go 10 mph over the limit, what would you do. Either way they get paid the same. I personally would go after the big fish, but then again I'm driven.

Any law can be changed if you do your homework on it and show that it's a violation of your rights, it's a non-productive law or there are inconsistencies in the law. Call your Congressman/Senators. Get a movement started. Get a petition signed. etc It either takes work or just wear your seatbelt. Most people just wear their seatbelt. It's easier to stop a proposed law than it is to repeal one.

#1 Cops don't make the laws, they just enforce them! So be mad at your politicians for that law. I hate using a seat belt too, but guess what, I don't want a ticket so I buckle up.....plus my truck makes that dinging noise and drives me f'ing crazy if I don't. Just like why they have speed limits....its all about safety. And yes cops focus on robberies and drug dealers too, but they don't have a crystal ball, you see, so in the mean time they enforce the laws. Its as simple as this: IF YOU DONT WANT A TICKET, DO NOT BREAK THE LAW. Is that simple enough? Some people are born stupid and can't figure that out though.

Damn....really? Well cops are regular people so where are these robbers and drug dealers at? Since maybe you know so much you can go get a police officer and take him/her to them. Cops can not read minds or see the future so they can not always tell where crimes are gonna happen you see. Life is not like the movies. Where are these so called "big fish"? Cops can not go arrest someone just because they think there are bad, they have to have a reason. Laws go both ways, they help protect people from crime and wrongfull prosecution. Laws are made these days to protect the bad guys instead of the good guys. Since you are so driven, go apply to be a cop then since you know where all the bad guys are and where all the crimes occur at.

You should by all means never wear your seat belt. That way....when you are involved in an accident you will be "slung clear"

I could agree with seat belt as a choice IF no one else is in the car .. U become a danger to them otherwise due to body flying around the car

Listen turbo, I am not a cop nor do I want to be. These people that are cops, signed up for it. They should do their job and stop half-assing it. I don't even have police training, and I can assure you that I could give someone a seatbelt or speeding ticket. They are trained to catch the real criminals. It's called doing a little detective work. If I was a cop, I would do real detective work, and not prey on old women who forget to click a seat belt.
