Click it or ticket

I got pulled over the other day for no seatbelt. The Elk Grove Village pig was sitting roadside in an unmarked car looking at people seatbelts
It cost 25 buck but he even lied to me and told me I was lucky he didnt write the ticket for 105.00.

Troopers worked all day on I-80 and I-57 today. 3 guys I work with got seat belt tickets.


I put my seat belt on everytime I seen them before they seen me.

Yeah that is what my buddy's said.....I laughed at them. I thought it was $25. That's why I put my seat belt on and slow down when I see squads in the distance, not many people look ahead in the road. Those that do save money in the long run.

Now that's good use of tax payer dollars

Does anyone remember when that dipshit senator in Missouri proposed a bill requiring seatbelts on motorcycles??

I remember when the seatbelt law was passed, the politicians promised it would not be used a "stand alone" ticketable offense. In other words, they said it could only be added to other tickets, not a primary cause. I remember thinking at the time- no way, they'll use it to generate revenue as they see fit.

Lieing fucks.

I saw something about this yesterday. But it was a cruiser with huge highway bars, so you just have to hold on and keep your legs in to live through a 180mph+ highway crash. But they should a seat belt on it???

If they're going to ticket for seatbelts it should be the least they could do to pass a helmet law.

Big fat +1. Seat belt saved my face twice and life once. Although the last time cost me separated shoulder I still think it is a good deal - I'd rather live, even with a separated shoulder.

Not trying to start a debate as well - except for the kids it's everyone's choice.

So, yeah, I just wear the damn thing all the time

I agree belts are good, but its bs that they generate revenue and pull over based on seatbelts. Btw you can have a baby on your dash and you get out of the ticket if you show up to court with a child seat (Im sure the judge would give an earful but the law wouldnt allow the fine)

If someones dumb enough to do that crap (and yes I've seen people that dumb) they need to be tossed in the back of a squad in cuffs. If an adult doesnt want to wear one, fine. If they want to meet the windshied with their face or feel what its like to get flung out of a rolling vehicle, I could give a rats ass. Kids, especially ones that should be in car seats to start with, are another story.

And before someone says "airbags", well those are one time shots. They wont help in multiple impacts or rolls.

When I get a miata (want one for autocross), I'm putting a full cage in it and 6pt harnesses. Still will be street driven on nice days. But since I;ve been upside down in cars before a, ahem, few times, I'm just a bit over cautious. Sliding upside down in an open cockpit car is rather entertaining to say the least. Nearly as fun as cartwheeling a car around 100ish (car was in 4th when I lost it. No speedos in racecars )

Tonight's evening ride included a small stretch on 290. Just south of thorndale, about 5 or 6 state troopers were sitting on the shoulder by the median. I guess they were getting ready to meet their quota for the evening.
