Crime Florida police pose as giant bunnies to catch illegal drivers

    WEST PALM BEACH — A man and a bunny were walking down the center median of Okeechobee Boulevard Wednesday morning when the bunny began flashing a sign at passing motorists: "Have a safe, hoppy holiday. Buckle up!"

    Amused drivers smiled and waved at the duo. (One motorist even tried to give the man a $20, thinking he was homeless.)

    But this was no joke. Both were West Palm Beach police officers out to enforce the state-sponsored "Click it or Ticket" campaign; signalling other officers stationed off Tamarind Avenue when motorists were not wearing their seat belts.

    Wearing a seat belt "should be an involuntary response when you get in a vehicle," said Sgt. Matthew Bessette of the department's traffic division. Beginning around 8 a.m., officers cited 50 motorists in the first two hours alone.

    Why are they allowed to do this? Oh yeah... they're cops.

    better question: why do we pay cops to do this with our tax $$? I don't really care if people drive with or without a seatbelt.. it's 100% their choice, and if people make stupid choices, then they deserve to get the consequence of such.

    Maybe it was a female officer.

    They can do what they want now a days, because they are just protecting us!

    I agree completely. If you die, thats your problem. If you wanna be stupid, thats also your choice. I always wear my seatbelt, and I suggest everyone else does highly because a small thing like a seatbelt can save your life and it's not a big hassle, but if you don't want to you're doing nothing but endangering yourself.

    Its all fun and games until Death Race rolls through there and cops dressed as Bunnies are worth 150 points a piece :)

    the car that the person comes out of would need to be moving towards you as well for that to happen.. in which case you have bigger problems (like a car that is colliding with you), and they are screwed regardless of what happens.. think of how fast the car needs to be going for a person to fly out the windshield - 50mph? at that speed, if you land on ANYTHING, you are screwed

    still not dressed in the proper bunny suit

    I'd love for you to point me in the direction of information regarding someone dying because of someone in another car not wearing a seatbelt flew into their car and killed them. :)

    Well I didn't... and technically neither did anyone else. What happens is, the tax money is taken from you, divided up by someone that you probably have never heard of, let alone voted for to do it, then given to who it is they felt needed it, probably glanced at the expenditures and division lists of the previous years for a second before giving everyone what they wanted. Then the cops go do it, knowing they're on salary and in addition will get a bonus if they reach certain quotas because when they do so, the state raises the crime rating of the area and subsequently sends them more money, which they often get a small percentage of for helping ensure we are all safely under their control.

    Plus they're probably dicks.
