One of those tickets that really can cause quite a headache and is very easily avoidable is that in which a police officer slaps you with an offense for not having your seat belt buckled. At the end of the day, it really is something that is for your own personal safety. I know that the debate goes back and forth over whether or not this should be an offense that should be accompanied by a fine, but I think that we can all agree that having your seatbelt fastened securely when you’re underway in the vehicle is a good idea.
Nevertheless, this time, we check out a police officer who was working hard to enforce this law. While on patrol, it looks like a civilian in traffic caught up with an officer who was checking out seatbelts in cars, sneaking up on the drivers and poking his head in the window to see if they were all buckled up, nice and tight. The person following along with this police car was left to question exactly what the officer was doing as he slowly crept through traffic. It sounds like the guy behind him thought that he was perhaps about to cut in line. However, when you see his head moving back-and-forth, a situation like this all makes sense as the pieces fall in place.
Check out the video down below that shows off this situation that will give you a little bit of insight on how exactly police look for people breaking law when it comes to keeping their seat belt buckled. While knowing how they look for you might help you to avoid a fine, I think of the best preventative measure that you can take to avoid getting a ticket like this would be to simply fasten your seat belt. At the end of the day, it’s only going to do you better anyway should you get tangled up in a high-intensity situation out there in traffic where you really need the restraint.
