Casino Smoking Ban, Seat Belt Law Advance
Under Senate Bill 151, drivers could be stopped and given a $25 ticket solely for failing to buckle up. Currently, they can be ticketed only if they are stopped for another traffic violation. ....Opponents included Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, who argued that the measure would trample on residents' personal freedoms and civil rights. "I don't believe you should be able to pull over someone in this country basically at will," Brophy said. "It is another way government will be able to harass citizens."Good for Sen. Ron Tupa (D-Boulder), the only Democrat to vote against the bill. All Republicans on the Senate caucus voted no.
