I have no problem with enforcing the law but these stops are typically used as money generating tools as well. While the people are stopped the cops will make sure they have a valid liscense their tags are valid and other things, and if they are not current then the fines come out. It winds up being profitable for the cops I'm sure.
Starting one week before and running one week after the Memorial Day holiday - from May 23 to June 5, 2005 - thousands of law enforcement agencies in communities across the country will be actively enforcing State safety belt laws during the Click It or Ticket Mobilization.
These efforts - coupled with paid advertising and the support of government agencies, traffic safety organizations, local advocates and others - will yet again result in dramatic increases in safety belt use, and will protect us against one of the greatest threats to us all - traffic crashes.
