Just a heads up.... There is a zone at 17 and Mound this morning. Quite a few people pulled over already. First one of the year that I have seen.

A friend of mine gets pulled over for that all the time. He whines like a little bitch for being fined some many times. I don't feel sorry for him.

x2...but there is nothing funnier than watching people getting nailed in those zones due to a lack of laziness....how many seconds does it take to put a seat belt on?

Especially when they play the commercials every 5 mins on the radio telling them they are out enforcing it. I was just giving a heads up to the people that don't wear their belts.

i'm pretty sure they even post signs at the beginning of the "seatbelt enforcement zone" but the idiots can't read either i guess.

Wekk I think this is part of the sociallistic goverment that we live with. First let me say I'm againist seat belts laws and helemtl laws I'm a fully grown person I don't need some one else to tell me for my own safety to buckle up I full understand why I should it should not be forced apond me but by the same time I have seen more times that seat belts have killed people. So this one should be left up to a fully grown person to decide this on there own.

Seat belts save more lives than they kill and the are compulsory for me, even driving up the driveway without one seems odd.


However, I won't / try not to wear lap only belts on the road, as they are pretty useless.

If this is the way you feel thats fine, theres lots of people that feel the same way. However people with this point of view should have to fill out a form that disqualifys them from any type of insurance, Health or life. So when there are ejected from there car in an accident or they fall of there chopper with out a helmet, they can't collect from the insurance company.

So, since more people in cars are hospitalized with head injuries than motorcycles, I shouldn't have to pay for them on my insurance. How about if you decide that you want to speed, you sign off on your rights to coverage. You choose to drive in a vehicle that is unsafe? No coverage.
Once again, the media and insurance companies tell you what to think, and like the sheep people are, they follow suit. Name one state that passed a freedom of choice helmet law that can show insurance rates went up.

Do I wear a seat belt? All the time. Do I think it should be a law? Nope. At the checkpoint,there are probably 10 to 15 officers there, at least 4 or 5 cars, and a ton of taxpayer money wasted.

Every day on my ride to work I watch people drive 20 to 25 MPH over the limit on M59. I watch people routinely run redlights, stop signs, and make unsafe lane changes. To waste police manpower on a seatbelt zone is bullshit.

i dont wear my seatbelt ever, i am in and out of the truck every 5 mins...if there was a passive restraint system i wouldnt mind but strapping in and out is a pain.....and yes if i kill myself b/c of a lack of seatbelt you all can mock me. point is i dont care. my seatbelt is my choice.

and yes i have been pulled over for it, i will complain for a short period of time but i understand i break the law, so i pay the fine and go on with my life.
