From a news release: 

While more than 3,400 traffic tickets were written by Maryland State Police officers in May during a seatbelt enforcement campaign, there is room for improvement for drivers and passengers on Maryland roads, the agency says. 

Troopers across the state conducted seatbelt enforcement efforts during Occupant Safety Month. A preliminary count shows more than 3,400 traffic citations were issued along with about 1,600 warnings throughout the state. 

Baltimore County had the highest number of violations with 952 citations issued for drivers or passengers not properly restrained and an additional 36 citations for not having a child younger than 8 in a safety seat. Troopers also issued approximately 150 warnings for seatbelt violations in the county.

Prince George’s, Allegany, Harford, Washington, and Cecil counties all had more than 300 violations recorded. 

The Maryland State Police will continue to take part in the Maryland Highway Safety Office’s ‘Move Toward Zero Deaths’ and ‘Click It or Ticket It’ campaigns.

Additional enforcement efforts will continue in the upcoming months focusing on impaired or distracted drivers, speeding and aggressive motorists, as well as those electing not to properly use safety restraints.

For an adult, wearing a seatbelt should be a personal decision. I think it is stupid not to, but you should have the option of being stupid. But, c'mon, those kids need to be in a car seat.
