Our View: New seat belt law is right for Minnesota
You're driving down one of the city's busy thoroughfares, obeying all the vehicular rules except one -- you are not wearing a seat belt. State law says you have to be buckled up; it's a legal detail you're fully aware of but choose to ignore.
You tell yourself, "I know the law. The cops can't stop me simply for not being strapped in. They gotta have another reason to pull me over. Only then can they write a seat belt ticket."
