IMO, this campaign is a joke. Quit spending my tax money reminding idiots to save their own lives.
I did. 2 years ago Memorial Day Friday.
I had just started a job and a friend of mine said that I didn't need to go in because no one is in the office on Fridays, let alone this specific Friday. Being the new employee that I was at the time, I went in anyway. Well, traffic sucked on the way home so I took a back way home. They actually had a seatbelt checkpoint. An officer pointed at me to pull off to the side. By the time that I was able to find my PBA card, I already had ticket in hand.
I do wear my seatbelt now, though.
