$110 ticket for not wearing seat belt

Postby w4rrior on Mon Apr 17, 2006 6:02 am

Bull bull bull. I was sitting in the backseat of my van, and my mom was driving to the gas station to fill up/pick up a few things. When we almost there, pulling out of a neighbourhood, a cop standing by a stop sign pulls us over. Obviously, as the title states, I wasnt wearing a belt, mainly because it was going to be a 2 minute drive just to go get gas. The cop told me that if i take to court i'll most likely end up winning. This was my first ticket and the reason why he didnt give me a warning was because of some zero tolerance policy. I understand that you should have your seatbelt on always, but im pissed off that i didnt get a warning, especially since it was my first time. Now im gonna have to waste time going to court for this...ugh.

Anyways, to all my fellow wkdnet canadians (especially those in ontario), be on the lookout! always wear your seatbelts, even if your gonna be in the car for only a minute.

The OCtranspo (bus service) cop gave me a $70 ticket two weeks ago for having an open beer at the bus stop while waiting to go downtown.

I think they saw me on the closed circuit camera cause they just drove up and said where is the beer?

yeah, they were out in full force this weekend, and are supposed to be for the next 2 weeks atleast. But in all honesty, it's your own fault for not having a belt on. Not only is it a law, it's really just stupid to not have one on. They are far from uncomfortable anymore, and the amount of people hurt/killed because of the whole "im 2 minutes from home" or the mentality that becasue you just pulled onto the street in which you live you can take the belt off is insane. Sorry, but you not getting a warning doesnt bother me.

its all about the brown paper bag special....

&

the whole seatbelt thing, at least the cop told you your gonna win ahead of time. That means he actually felt bad about giving you the ticket.

it makes me want to make sure EVERYONE who rides in my car wears a seatbelt.

I love U.K. Commercials.
