KS cops to start writing seat-belt tickets


Starting Wednesday, Kansas is going to stop giving warnings and start writing tickets to motorists who don't wear seat belts. As you might remember, the Sunflower State passed a primary seat-belt law a while back, which means police can stop someone simply for going beltless. In the past, you had to be stopped for another violation, like speeding, before you got zapped for seat belts.

Brad Cooper has a good story this morning, noting the fine for these tickets has been dropped to $5 until mid-2011.
