Officer writes 10 year old a ticket

A Texas cop wrote a traffic ticket to a 10 year old boy for improperly wearing a seat belt. The 4th grader told a reporter he was scared. Reportedly, Texas law says you have to be 15 to get a traffic ticket.

The assistant chief of the police department is reviewing the matter. Yeah, why wasn't the kid arrested?

Update: The officer later wimped out and asked the court to dismiss the little lawbreaker's ticket. The court did.

Running your license plate number doesn't come cheap. Alberta will spend about $77 million (Canadian) doing that this fiscal year. Starting September 1, they'll pass the cost along to the municipalities--at $15 a pop. The cities are expected to add the cost to the fine a motorist pays.
