Child who wouldn't buckle up is sent to traffic class

A New Mexico five-year-old sentenced to traffic safety class after refusing to wear a seatbelt says he is reformed.
David Kirk-Peet completed the class Thursday and was handed a certificate.
He promised to buckle up, saying: "You want to get safe."
Magistrate Buddy Sanchez sentenced David and his mother to the class after an officer spotted the boy unbuckling his seatbelt earlier this year.
His mother received a ticket for failing to restrain him.
She asked the officer to speak to David about the importance of seatbelts because he constantly unbuckled.
The ticket landed her in Sanchez's courtroom, where she explained the problem.
