Tales from the seat-belt crackdown

On its Facebook page today, the Minnesota State Patrol provides a little shaming for the anonymous driver who was cited during the Patrol’s crackdown on seat belt non-usage.

The driver and passenger of this vehicle were cited on Wednesday by a trooper near downtown St. Paul for not buckling up.

Secure your cargo but the seat belt is for you, not your load. Join the crowd and buckle up. Minnesota’s observational seat belt survey shows 94 percent compliance.

Extra seat belt patrols are on Minnesota roads through Oct. 25.

The pallets, the seat belts, the popped hood, the license plate that’s falling off… points for ingenuity here, sir.

But what’s the story here? If that’s your car, get in touch with me.
