    I'm driving down the freeway minding my own business when this state cop pulls up beside me, looks at me and then slows down to get behind me so he can pull me over.

    He walks up to my window and I ask "why did you pull me over"

    Seatbelt, hes says.

    "You pulled me over for a F@#$ing seatbelt?"

    Yeah, why aren't you wearing it?

    Because I don't want to, I said with attitude. That's pathetic of you to be doing this Sh@t what are they paying you m@#$er F@#$ers commission now?

    Sir, I would suggest you tone it down.

    Go write the F@#$ing ticket and go get hit by a car doing it!!

    So he takes about 15 minutes to "do his thing" then comes back , hands me my id and stuff back, then holds the ticket and starts talking-I aint listening. I grab the ticket crumble it up and throw it on the passenger side floor. Tell him to have a ****ty life and leave.


    So he passes me and pulls upside the truck I am following, cuts in front of him, pulls off the road to let the truck pass, gets behind him and pulls him over.

    What kind of F@#$ing Bull$hit is that??????

    NOT

    It's pretty bad when some ***** can go get as many abortions as she wants and I can't have the choice of not wearing a f@#$ing seatbelt.

    That's F@#$ed up and petty.

    Normally I respect your posts...I can't say that this is one of'm...to compare abortion with a seat belt law is from one end of the spectrum to the other...I can understand you not believing the law is neccesary and in fact one could come up with several reasons why seat belts could actually be dangerous, on the other hand one could also come up with many reasons why they save lives...you are obviously "frustrated" at having been on the recieving end...yes probably plenty he could've been doing rather than looking for seat belt violations...but murphy catches up with all of on occasion...today was just your day...

    I'm Venting.

    I think its petty to be pulling people over to give seat belt tickets.

    and the abortion thing was brought up for the choice issue.

    Dude, I used to feel the way you did, (in my younger years )
    Two years ago, My son and I were driving along minding our own business when two girls pulled out right in front of us.
    (we were in a big cadillac). Thank God NC has mandatory seat belt laws. We hit them @ 40 MPH. Luckily I was able to swerve to the right and hit them In the bed of the truck they were driving. I took the brunt of the impact. Point is, We were wearing seatbelts. If not, my self and my son(who is my life) would most likely been severely injured. We both walked away. I'm not telling you what to do, but it only takes a few seconds to click your seatbelt. SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES.
    Just a friendly suggestion as a fellow tradesman and as a dad.
    Take care, PABULL

    I lost two people in my high school class because of not wearing seatbelts. In a class of 115, it hit home.

    I've posted them before and here they are again.......

    this is our installers old truck. He walked away thanks to his seat belt that kept his head to the back of the cab.






    he did suffer a minor hand injury, note the steering wheel saran wraped with the windsheild.



    It was clear from marks on the raod, ditch and the truck that he went end over end once before barrel rolling a few times. Yet he walked away.......ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEATBELT!

    Tickets are written to generate revenue...period!

    I always wear mine but this is America and if your not hurting anyone else, you ought to be able to do what you want.

    And in NJ, they did the same thing. Seatbelt law was a secondary offence...only ticketed if pulled over for something else. It somehow became a primary offence. The government spends too much time protecting me from myself.

    Starting today in NJ, talking on a cell phone is a secondary offence. Putting ketchup on my fries while balancing my diet coke is still legal.

    And why do cops write tickets? To generate revenue. When they increased the speed limit to 65 here, they doubled the fines for speeding as part of the "trade off". Speeding tickets more than doubled the next month. When they went from annual to biannual car inspections, the fines doubled for not having an inspection ticket. The tickets written for that more than quadrupled for several months.

    You can ride a motorcycle without a helmet, but you gotta wear a seat belt in a car.

    Seatbelt

    Saved my life 25yrs. ago. Car traveled 360 feet after leaving the road. They weren't required then. Motorcycle helmets have always been required here.
    Be safe not fast. body parts don't grow back
