St. Louis, MO – St. Louis County police have launched an intensive patrol in South County to build awareness of the county's new seat belt ordinance.
The new law makes not wearing a seat belt a primary offense, allowing cops to pull over a driver for that reason. In the past, no-seat belt tickets could only be written if a driver was pulled over for another traffic offense like speeding.
This weekend, music fans in St. Louis will have a variety of concert options to choose from: Steve Wynn and the Miracle Three are playing at Off Broadway. The Alkaline Trio will rock the Pageant. Or, if punk rock's not your thing, you could check out the Rhythm Kings at Beale on Broadway. But, admit it, how many of you just don't make it out to concerts as much as you used to, or as much as you'd like to?
