***Locations & Time Announcement***

1) Lake Street (unknown where between Gary Avenue and Bloomingdale/Roselle Road from 4:30-6:30pm
and
2) Roselle Road and the Elgin O'Hare Expressway from 6:30-8:30pm (that should be smooth sailing in traffic grrrrr!!!!)


I'm sure you've heard the commercials on the radio again recently and it always seems to be around 4th of July and the Winter Holidays that they do this...anyway, the Illnois State Police are funding local and county departments to do the Seatbelt Roadblocks again.

This Friday, Roselle is having them in 2 locations from 4:30pm until 8:30pm. I dont know the exact locations yet but one of them will be on Roselle Road near the Elgin O'Hare. With these roadblocks, the officer have absolutely no discretion in writing the tickets, we are ordered/mandated to. An independant source comes out and records the total number of vehicles pulled over and we have to account for every one.

So, hopefully everyone is wearing their seatbelt anyway but make sure to this Friday if you're near Roselle!!!

(On a side note, make sure you have your current insurance card and Drivers license on you too....otherwise then you have to court to show you have it and then eventhough that insurance or no DL on person ticket gets dropped, you still get stuck with the DuPage County court fine fee for seatbelt which is a couple hundred whereas mailing the fee if you only got one single ticket is still $55)

yea but your digging into the "should helmets be mandatory" argument. Its a safety device and of course there are arguments for both sides. Doesnt matter since i always wear mine either. These checkpoints are good though, maybe itll get some of these dumbass parents to put seatbelts on their kids instead of having them jump around in the back seat. Huge pet peeve of mine when i see it.

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I wasn't trying to start something, I'm not someone who debates just for fun. I don't see it as the same thing as a helmet. It's unobtrusive and a reflex for me. People need to calm down a bit over petty stuff

I can understand why some people (certainly not myself) choose not to wear a helmet when riding, you can smell the air, the vision is a little more open, you can feel the wind in the air, etc. That makes sense to me even though I won't be caught dead without a lid on Brian's Brain. That being said, why the hell would you NOT wear a seatbelt? Unless you're dancing in your car, there's no reason not to wear it. It keeps you safer, doesn't impede your movement (since you're not leaning or moving while driving), doesn't even cost anything like a nice helmet does, so why the hell not wear the bloody thing. At least when you have it on, it doesn't jingle around by your side.

I never let anyone ride in my car witout a seatbelt, the little things like this may save your life, since it's there and free, why not wear it. It's not like wearing a condom, a seatbelt doesn't make the driving experience dulled down.


BTW, thanks for the heads up CriminalGirl.

I always found it funny that when I got back from racing an AMA race dragging a knee bangin' bars at 150+mph inches from death I had to put on a seatbelt when I was in a truck going 25 down a side street. I guess safety is relative.

I am NOT going to go down the road of what is forced upon anyone regarding the laws - especially with the job I have. But I can say one thing from first hand experience... Seat belts work!

Head on with a sleeper cab semi at 35-40mph. The airbag did this to my arm through a long sleeve uniform. I took off the seatbelt and got out of the car without any thought. First picture is the night after the crash. The second picture was a week later. They had to peel the old skin away from a rubber tipped sponge and antiseptic - OW! That was the ONLY injury I sustained. I can't find pictures of the squad or I would post those too.

Wear it or don't - your choice. But it was enacted as law for a reason.

Yeah, standing out in this weather bites but it's nothing like the DUI roadblocks at night in Dec/Jan or better yet during the Superbowl last year when it was -5!!!
