      I can see that I have opened a large can of worms with this question. I agree with you about who is and who should and should not be on our roads. I do agree that the cop was doing his job. But I also know and have heard stories of croocked cops, and these days we are finding more and more of dis hones cops. What bothers me is that most of the people that I hear from about tickets get them near the end of the month. Which makes us think the the cop is in a hurry to meet his quota. As for voting, I have seen people who are so kind, have changed once they have the law in their hands (sort of speak). They become ignorant and won’t have much to do with common people. When
      you visit foreign countries you do not have all of these laws that we have in this country. The one that always gets me is YOU BREAK IT YOU BOUGHT IT. I would think that it is common sence if my child broke it I pay for it. A neighbor was in Europe visiting a store with ton of fragile items and kids walking and no signs telling them not to touch and no one broke anything. This country is going down with it’s laws, jobs, moral values etc.

      my 2 cents

      If you hit someone in the rear it is automatically your fault because
      it is assumed you were following too close, even if the idiot pulled
      out in front of you! If you pull into traffic oncoming traffic has
      the right of way so even if it looks as if no one is coming always do
      a complete stop, look both ways and back again because if you hit
      somenoe as you pull into traffic it is your fault. After all, what if
      you were the one traveling dowon the road and someone pulled out into
      you?

      There is a problem with drivers too old to drive who should not be on
      the highway. A neighbor of ours is so senile when he drives on the
      interstate he stops at the end of the on ramp and goes 40mph on a
      70mph interstate, pulls out in front of people and runs off the road!
      There is also a problem with motorcycles as they are very hard to see
      and we all need to be on the lookout for them. Finally you add
      foreign drivers
      who have no clue how to drive on our roads and people
      who drive who have no licesne, drunk drivers and those under the
      influence of drugs, might as well take the bus!

      I have been a corrections officer and there were a lot of people in
      prison who are innocent, and just as many if not more guilty that
      walk the streets. Maybe the cop was an A** but he was really trying
      to do his job and make the streets safer for everyone. Did you know
      that when the accident rate increases insurance rates go up? Besides,
      trying to fight a ticket is a no-win situation unless you got it
      video taped so why pay out more money just to go to court and get all
      worked up? The government controls way too much of our lives, I do
      not like seatbelts either but I wear it rather than risk losing my
      license. If you want the laws changed blaming a cop is not the way to
      go all the time. Vote for the right person and do things right. If

      you chose not to vote then keep quiet because silence is the same as
      agreement.

      look at the accident, discounted the eyewitness testimony, and wrote
      me a ticket for failure to yield. Went to court, affidavit from
      another party saying he did not see the motorcycle….I got to pay
      the fine w/no points.

      > Several years ago I was sitting at a stop sign & a police officer
      passed me. I turned left & he turned around & pulled me over. He

      asked why I did have my seatbelt on, I told him I did, he asked me
      again & I told him the say thing. He was getting really mad at me.
      But I wasn’t backing down. He told me no I didn’t & then he said my
      daughter didn’t have a seatbelt on either. He gave me a ticket for no
      seatbelt but he didn’t give me a ticket for my daughter (she had a
      seatbelt on) He was a big jerk. That was all he did, give people
      tickets for no seatbelt. I wasn’t about to pay for a ticket over
      something I didn’t do. I went to a no seatbelt class. They showed
      films on wrecked car & told stories about people that didn’t wear a
      seatbelt. Guess who the instructor was???? The policeman that gave me
      the ticket. I would go to court.

      gave me a ticket. I didn’t think I did anything wrong and forgot the
      seat belt law. I live in Illinois.

      him. I didn’t see him, I was looking for an Estate Sale and turning
      my head left and right, so he thought that I was ignoring him. I am
      short and was wearing a bulky coat that was unzipped. I think that
      for that reason he didn’t see me buckled when I went past him. I
      showed him how fast I can buckle up hoping he would see that I do use
      my seat belt.
