Operation "Buckle-Up"

Buckling up can mean the difference between life and death. It can also mean the difference in whether you get a ticket or not.

State troopers started a crackdown Monday for people not wearing a seatbelt. Over the next two weeks, highway patrol will conduct operation "Buckle-Up" 2007. Troopers hope the new enforcement will raise statewide seatbelt use from 89 percent to more than 90 percent.

Operation "Buckle-Up" 2007 will end on September 23. Troopers hope the enforcement project will reduce highway fatalities. The fine for not buckling up is $50.00 a violation.

    I Think buckling up is the thing to do because we have so many speeders and wreckless drivers on the road today, but I don't think anyone over 18 yrs of age should be told. This is America. Are we so childish that we are going to allow our leglislators to tell us what to do, For the benefit of the insurance companies. Tell your legislator to amend that law to be for those of less than voting age.
