Buckle Up For Biscuits!

Some people at McDonald's got a little something extra with their breakfast on Monday morning.

State law enforcement officials were at several McDonald's, including several ones in Lexington, to promote the "Click It Or Ticket" campaign.

They handed out information about how important it is to buckle up. People who were wearing seat belts got coupons for free chicken biscuits and other items.

    There he goes again; Wow in Richmond. Guess what Wow; if you are T-boned at a high rate of speed and you ARE NOT wearing your seat belt, you are like a human cannonball and will be shot out the side window and land who knows where. If you have a passenger, you will be thrown into them, possibly killing them. You need to watch some films at the DOJCT in Richmond. You might understand how even one person not using a seatbelt becomes a threat to the other passengers in the car. Quit being so lame brained and negative on all your posts. If you think law enforcement is "out to get everyone," don't call them when you need them. You call everyone who disagrees with you "sheep" because you think that your opinion is the only one that matters. The majority of the people who regularly post on this board know you are a jerk. You comment to get a rise out of people. Grow up and act like a responsible person for a change and quit living in your Mom's basement.

    As mentioned before...I get harassed over a seatbelt, while 18yr olds buzz by me on bikes at 150 with no helmet on. Yea, makes sense. Are there any rational sane people left? Oh yes, there are, waiting for the rest of the world to come kick their door in to take away some more freedoms and choice. Maybe mother nature will rid this planet of the disease we call humanity, for it is fact, that we have mutated out of control.

    @Steve Location: Lexington I personally know 2 people that would be dead today if they had wore a seat belt in the accidents they were in. The oldest a 32 yrold had two such wrecks. You see when your strapped in a seat and a car hits your door you are stuck there to be cut in half by the door and front grill of the car that Tboned you. However if you dont wear your belt you are pushed over the other seat and survive with broekn pelvis and crushed side instead. So next time you decide to back a law made only for cops to be able to harrass and further ticket innocent citizens do some research on why its a law and motorcyclists still dont have to wear helmets. More sheep like you born everyday. Men with guns that break down the wrong doors and shoot people in their beds are here to help us. Just like knights protected the serfs of their lands right stevo?

    Steve, the only reason I complain is because I don't see why you would reward someone for something they're supposed to do anyways. That's like giving someone a reward because they walk out of a bar and get into their car and drive away- SOBER like they're supposed to do- It just doesn't make sense. I guess it's a nice gesture but still doesn't make me understand it any better.

    So did they give tickets to the people that did not have their seat belts on? I think that they should have done that also. Like oh wow said, it is the law so they should not reward them for obeying it.

    Figures someone would complain. If they gave all people 1 million dollars in the hope of a better life, there would be whiners on this message board. The purpose of this is twofold in all likelihood...1) get people to buckle up no matter what it takes, if it saves lives it's worth it, and 2) to let people know Law Enforcement is here to help you, not always to hurt you. This type of "reward" thing from police has went over very well in many other states and I think it's a good thing that they're doing it here now to try to let people know that cops aren't just out to write you a ticket, they are out to help you in general.

    I dont think it should be up to law makers to tell me i have to BUCKLE UP its my free will to put it on not theres back in the 70's no one wore seat belts so why should they make us ware them today.
  • by oh wow Location: jackson co on May 19, 2008 at 09:15 AM
    Let's give people a reward for something that is the law to do anyways. I buckle my seat belt every time I get in the car, whether I'm going down the road or on a long trip-- where's my chicken biscuit?!
