Before anyone misinterprets what VanLaren said, it reads.....don't buckle up, suffer the consequences (ie. accidents and insuing injuries and/or death). If you(and should) buckle up, this law won't impact you in the least!I think it is total bullshit. Government should not dictate to you that you have to wear a seatbelt anymore then they should dictate that you have to wear a helmet. It should be personal choice. That is how natural selection works.
Yep. Exactly. I've been in Maryland and pulled over for "Not wearing my seat belt" I always wear it. The cop comes up to the car after running my plates says He pulled me over for not wearing my seatbelt. Then after seeing my seatbelt on says " I must have made a mistake. Have a nice day!" Still trying to figure out how a cop could ever tell if you're wearing your seatbelt when he's following you down the interstate at 60mph. Just opens the door to pull you over and take a peek in your car.Been like that here for years. It's another way to generate revenue and possibly have a normal traffic stop turn into a dui stop, or check for warrants, drugs, etc.
It's not because they care about our safety.
