seat belt. The mistake I made was to unclick the seat belt when he
puled me over, I panicked. In all honesty I was wearing it but he
gave me a ticket. I didn’t think I did anything wrong and forgot the
seat belt law. I live in Illinois.

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.

a chance or will I have to pay the $55 plus court costs. If you know
anything about this problem please give me your input.
