New Jersey has a law that makes failure to wear a seat belt a primary offense. What does this mean? It means they can sit there on the side of the road and pull you over if they "see" that your seatbelt is not fastened. So if they are wrong, or see incorrectly, you are in trouble. It will be your word against theirs. You will get a fine. You will have to go to court to fight the ticket, or take it where the sun don't shine.
There has been cases where a person who died in a car accident would have lived if he or she was NOT wearing their seatbelt. So how can the State make the people do something that could actually kill them? I'm not saying wearing a seatbelt is less safe than not wearing a seatbelt. But it is NOT 100% safer. So it is a bad law that needs to be fixed ASAP. Next thing you know, they will make a law that says it is a primary offense to talk on your cell phone while driving...oh shit...too late.
Of course, this law is found all over the good old US of A, but there are many more reasons why New Jersey is a communist state. This is only the beginning.
