Don't Say You Weren't Warned

Law enforcement around Florida is giving you a heads-up as we head toward the Memorial Day Holiday: buckle up or get a ticket. Florida Highway Patrol troopers gathered with local police agencies on the steps of the Capitol Friday to announce the annual "Click It or Ticket" zero-tolerance campaign.

They displayed 26 seat belts in memory of the people who weren't buckled up and died in crashes in Florida last year over the holiday weekend.

Gov. Jeb Bush is also expected to sign a bill into law that will allow police to pull you over if anyone in the car under 18 isn't wearing a seatbelt.

It's sad to learn when anyone dies in a car accident. I know a guy that died in a car wreck cause he was racing his Lancer vs. a GTI. He Lancer skidded, hit a tree, rode about 15' up it, turned over on the hood and then slammed down onto the pavement and slid down an embankment. It was so horrible.

Nice to know though that they are looking out for people without belts on. What they gonna do about bikes? Give us tickets?

But we do have the same law here. If they can see your not wearing it you get pulled over, it sucks. I do however agree that under age 18 it should be required.

I have to agree, but not wearing your seatbelt is just like riding without your helmet, it does you no good unless you wear it.

I would never argue the safety point of ether.

I just prefer the choice.
