I think this is a good idea, and I hope they catch every idiot out there who can't be bothered to wear his seatbelt.
Looking at it that way, I agree. But, I also think they should write tickets for people talking on their cell phone while driving. In just the last week, I would have to use both hands and feet to count how many people I've encountered driving recklessly while talking on a cell phone on the interstate.
