    N.C. Highway Patrol

    Went to eat lunch from work the other day and as I was pulling into the cafe a N.C. Highway Patrol Man pulled in behind me and turned on his blue light. As he approached I had already gotten my liscense out and as he asked me to sit still while he ran my I.D. I told him that I had something else for him and handed him my CCW. He asked if I had it on me and I replied with Yes , Right Front Pocket, he then handed me my CCW , never said another word and returned to his car.After about 5 minutes he returned handed me my Liscence and a seat belt ticket , asked me to please start wearing it and said have a nice day and left.He acted like it never even phased him that i was concealed carrying.O Well not so bad i guess only $126.50 that I had to pay for being stubborn and not wearing my seat belt.

    Glad that it went well.

    Wear your seat belt!

    We wear our seat belt for the same reason we carry a gun, you never know when you are going to need it.

    So click it or ticket!

    So a seatbelt lesson. A few days after 9/11 my oldest son was driving w/4 others in the car. The girl in the middle of the backseat wasn't buckled in. Afterall, who can find that particular seatbelt most times, right? My son hit a small oak tree, by 2 different police accounts, at less that 25 MPH. The girl in the back seat came forward like a rocket. Heads connected. She was in a comma for weeks, finally recovered and went on about a normal life. He....never came home. So a family of 4 is now 3. I used to be on & off about using them. I realize now, it might not be just me that I'm protecting.

    Sorry for being a bummer but ..... learn and live. I have friends that don't use them, but they do in my vehicles. Everyone buckles up or the truck doesn't move.

    Click it or pay the tax. I wouldn't expect the cop to care about your gun. He had a higher risk of getting hit by another car during the traffic stop then getting shot..

    I used to sneer at seatbelts, until the day I just happened to be wearing one when I t-boned a car going 45 MPH. I will never forget that moment when the belt yanked me back as I was headed for the windshield (and the airbag didn't deploy because it was a used car and the dealer snatched it before he sold the car) I am a convert now.

    The rough part for the LEO's is that we have seen first hand, many times, the results of not wearing a seat belt.

    Happy that everything else went as it should!

    For personal risk management, you're many, many times more likely to have your life saved by a seatbelt than a handgun.

    It seems silly to me that someone who carries around a loaded pistol for "safety" won't bother to use a very common, inexpensive, and VERY effective safety device like a seatbelt.

    Back as a teenager, I was "stubborn" as well. It cost me a broken hand, a concussion, and three teeth when I went through the windshield of a '66 Ford.
