    Saw lots of cops today, out standing around instead of driving. Is it click it or ticket season?

    Same time every year.....Memorial Day and Labor Day. Easy way to avoid the ticket is to click it.

    Does anyone not wear their seat belt? I find my self putting it on just to back the car out of the garage. Feel odd with it off.

    My dad wasn't the night his patrol car flipped on 2243. He would have been killed in the wreck had he been wearing his seat belt. OR at least that is what I was told by the guys my dad worked with. I've seen the dash cam vid from the first responding officer, it was not comforting to look at his car.

    Seat belts should be an option there is no "public" safety issue, the life at stake is your own. I relate it to saying that guns kill people all by themselves. So I click it, I don't want to but I do. That is was counts I guess.

    I wear mine everytime I get into a vehicle. As for people who don't that is their personal choice its just like the not wearing a helmet on a motorcycle.

    I always wear mine, like putting on deodorant before leaving the house :rofl:


    I had a bad rollover years ago. I was wearing my seat belt. I got tired of answering the question after wards "Were you wearing your seat belt?". What the heck do you think? It's the law, it's what I was taught, of course I was.

    STEP. Selective Traffic Enforcement Program. State/Federal grant funds for OT to enforce specific laws. Speeding, seat belts, DWI are the big three. Hey it's "free Federal money"!
