Click-it or Ticket Mobalization

Unless you've been sleeping for the last month (or don't live in the U.S.), you have seen or heard advertising advising you to wear your seat belt - 'Click-it or Ticket'. In case you didn't know, all of this has been a campaign by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration called The Click-It or Ticket Mobalization.

I've never liked this law, it always seemed like an unnecessary invasion of privacy and personal freedom. Pursuant to understanding how this all came about and it's legal foundation I went looking for some data on the web. Here are a few articles I found:

Addressing Issues: Personal Freedom

The Fraud of Seat-Belt Laws

While I now understand the issues on both sides better, personally, I would rather see my tax dollars spent on something else.
