I find it an infringement of my personal freedom and space for you to issue tickets for not wearing a seatbelt. That should be my personal choice as to whether or not I choice to use this safety device. I also don't like that I can't buy a newer car and not be able to switch off the air bags. This is especially true in a state that DOES NOT MANDATE helmets for motorcycle riders.

I cannot tell you how many tickets I write for kids not having on their seat belt. That's one summons I cannot give a warning for!
