YULEE, Fla. -- It is a fact that wearing a seat belt can save your life. That is why Florida requires you to buckle up if you are driving a car. But what if the car is in your campground and not on the roadway. Is that an exception?
Charles Ross was getting ready to leave his campground in his Oldsmobile. He said had just left his driveway and was still in the campground.
"The cop standing right there (near the exit) and he stopped me," said Ross.
Ross said a Nassau County Sheriff's Office deputy was on the property for something else but noticed that he was not wearing his seat belt.
"He said 'I see you don't have your seat belt on, I said 'yes sir I will by the time I hit (Highway) 17.'"
U.S. Highway 17 is the main road to and from the privately operated campground where Ross lives.
