APB -- Turn Buckle

Hey, gang!

Did you know, in Illinois, you can be ticketed for not wearing your seat belt in your car, even if YOU'RE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY AND THE CAR ISN'T EVEN RUNNING?!?

It's because another vehicle could go out of control and hit your vehicle while you are in it.  It's just the government trying to protect life and liberty and not a cash-strapped state trying to wring every last dime out of its citizens.

Thank you, Illinois voters.

It's very similar with DUI. If you are sitting in a parked car that is not running, but the keys are in the ignition, you can still get pegged for DUI as you are "in control" of the vehicle.

So, if you are buzzing, and it's freezing out, and you decide to sleep it off in your car, keeping it running so the heater will keep you from freezing to death... you are going to jail.
