We're not making this up...

LPIN State Chair Mark Rutheford made some interesting observations about seatbelt laws on his blog last weekend. Please allow me to relate a story that took place in Hagerstown a couple of weeks ago.

A friend of mine went to sleep the other night with his truck parked in his driveway. The next morning, when he discovered that it had been stolen, he called the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, who informed him that they would send an officer out. Two days and several phone calls later, no one from the sheriff's department had ever appeared, but my friend was told that if he would come into the office and file a report, he could then buy a copy of that report for a dollar, and for three dollars the department would fax a copy of the report to his insurance company.

My friend was a little late getting to their office, though. He had to pass through a couple of seatbelt checkpoints on the way.
