Somebody told me that there are cameras that take pictures of people not wearing their seat belts at the intersection. Is this person pulling my leg or does it really happen?
Quick, call your local Law enforcement, another revenue source.
O man, usa need $$$, so they need to do anything loke that to get more money,,,but think other way, that is good for us too,,,,at least more safe when we have any happen....
Its for the reven...errr..children! (ya..thats it!)
If you wear your seatbelt you won't have anything to worry about.
Well I don't know about where you live, But if they are going to take a pic of the seat belts here, they will have to have two cameras. Our plates are on the back end of the car.
I saw on news that Montgomery Co. MD Police use night vision goggles to catch seat belt violators.
This was true. The Governor at the time (Erlich) was so mad he banned the practice. Cops got chewed out.
When it comes to free money, these guys are really creative.
I heard there are cameras now that can tell if you are driving without shoes....How long is your leg now???? This is really getting to be comical....
I haven't heard of that one yet....it seems to be a far stretch.
In California, a cop can not issue a ticket for only not wearing seat belts. But it would be additional item if you have other violation at the same time.
Same in Ohio. A seat belt violation is a secondary offense. You have to stopped for another violation before you can be tagged with a seat belt.
I'm not sure you are correct. I believe they can pull you over in Calif. for not wearing a seatbelt.
See quote below:
Kicking off May 15, “Click It or Ticket” is a national high-visibility enforcement period that targets motorists who fail to buckle themselves or their children. The University of California Police Department, Los Angeles (UCPD) will participate in the campaign by having its patrol officers intensify enforcement of seat-belt and child-passenger safety laws for public, University and electric-cart vehicles. Drivers failing to restrain themselves and their child passengers will be ticketed according to the law.
The maximum fine in California for a seat-belt violation for individuals 16 and older is $87 for the first offense and the citation more then doubles for the second offense. Drivers who are cited for not properly securing children under 16 in a vehicle are subject to a maximum fine of $340 for a first offense and up to $871 for a second offense.
I know that in Georgia they can pull you over just for seatbelt
Vermont is also a secondary violation....unless it is a child...then it becomes primary. You wouldn't argue if you saw the results of kids not wearing them.
In Illinois, they always set up "Seatbelt Checkpoints", with more of them around the holidays. Of course, after they pull you over for the seatbelt, the first question out of their mouths is "have you been drinking tonight?".
Great way to increase DUI arrests.
Now it's getting beyond absurd!
