SPD on Seat Belt Sweep Wednesday

Jeff Garretson - July 29, 2013 11:05 am

Salina Police will be out in force Wednesday evening – looking for seat belt violations.

Lt. Russ Lamer tells KSAL News that four officers and one spotter will be working around the city, from 9pm Wednesday to 1am Thursday, looking for occupants who are not buckled up.

Lt. Lamer says that citations for unrestrained adults are $10 while the citation for children under 18-years old who are not buckled up is $60 plus court costs of $55.

The extra hours for officers is paid for by a special night time seat belt enforcement grant.

Just another way to waste our tax paying money…. Go arrest someone that is breaking into a house or a business somewhere in town. I don’t care if the money is coming from some STUPID “SEATBELT Enforcement GRANT” How about paying the SPD to do something better with their time.

Ok crooks you got the times Lamer is going to be getting off on seat belts. Has anyone else realized as I do that is all Lamer does for the department? I hope when we get a new chief Lamer is shown the door he is worthless. Come get me Lamer I will be out driving without my seatbelt.

I spoke to this Lamer guy in another post I made and he needs to be redirected to informing seniors about phone scams. He probably could connect with them as he is in that catagory. My question is who is he going to dress up as this time around? This law definately violates our constitution but none of the politicians have the guts to do anything about it. Our only recoarse is to clog up the courts with these citations and also to pull taxpayer monies from being paid to enforce a law that the police departments are being paid to enforce to begin with. There are alot more important things the time and money could be spent on giving our community a brighter crime free future.
