Lets keep pulling over law biding citizens for going to work without a seatbelt. Dont worry about the thefts that are going on in Stonehill Industrial Park. Its too hard to provide security to business in the middle of the night. But lets get a grant to pay overtime to police to stop people that dont meet the seatbelt law that was never going to be inforced. Everyone over 50 remembers that great lie. Good idea to wear seat belts ? You beat it is. Good idea to stop theft in the middle of the night you beat it is. Try protecting us from crime first, then when thats accomplished we can worry about seat belts. Anyone wanting to get by with stealing things go to Stonehill Business park, no ones looking in the middle of the night, everyones asleep.

"Traffic Safety Campaign"??? Another massive and absolute shakedown of law abiding citizens by modern day bottom feeding local Gestopos in REPUBLICAN controlled districts. The hypocrisy is mind boggling. What are TOM CROSS' and KAY HATCHER'S positions on all of this??? Crickets chirping... This is a robbery campaign of your funds. The local police are running out of your tax dollars that they have mis managed. think about that for a sec! Vote and support NON Republicans and NON Democrats because they are wolves in sheep's clothing and are selling you out. Just look at all the section 8 that has been moved into Kendall County. Oswego is no longer a desirable place to live because of the Republiscum and Demorat sell outs. Time to take our freedom, rights and liberty back from these tyrants.

Another safety campaign that will likely target the easy idiots and turn a blind eye to safety concerns like distracted driving/texting while driving.

How exactly is this a shakedown of law abiding citizens?? If you're not obeying traffic laws then you are not a law abiding citizen at that moment. Nobody will have any reason to pull you over if you put your seat belt on and obey traffic laws while on the road. Take responsibility for yourselves.

So on one hand it seems we have had a host of serious auto accidents in the area recently and that seems to cause some folks concern... On the other hand a plan for intensive enforcement of traffic laws also causes people concern.... Just no pleasing folks in Oswego it seems...
