They’re baaaaaack! Seat belt cops on the prowl in the areaPosted by Jack Howser on Tuesday, May 24th, 2011 @ 11:57 am.

Remember the days when law enforcement assured us that not having your seatbelt on would NOT result in a traffic stop, that they’d only issue a ticket if there was another reason for the stop and you didn’t have your seatbelt on? We do, too.
We find it remarkable that in most states, a BFD is made over auto drivers not being “buckled up”….but no such rule holds for motorcycle drivers because motorcycles don’t have seatbelts. Nor do school buses, although the ever-encroaching legislators in our state and others are trying to mandate THAT. And you think your property taxes are high NOW because of school spending (this is especially directed to those who have no children in the public school system).
Our correspondent, Old Fart, opined on it like this: “Yes it’s the seatbelt law, a law that should have never been passed and should be fought down nationwide. Why should I have to wear a seatbelt in my car when a motorcycling fool can go without a helmet? Why should I be forced to wear something if I choose not to? I must also ask what’s next after all this and other unconstitutional laws? A dress code perhaps?”
