How do you get out of seat belt ticket when I was wearing my seat belt?

Well, you can't "get out" of any ticket that you have been issued. The officer who issued the ticket is accusing you of committing the infraction for which he issued the ticket. If you feel that you did not commit the infraction, then you have the right to take the matter to court and fight it. It's the same thing as if you were stopped and given a ticket for running a stop sign: it's your word against the officer's. The question that the court will ask you in a defense like this is: why would the officer stop you and issue you a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt if you were wearing one.

If the Pistons knew Elden Campbell would back on the team before he cleared waivers what stopped another team from claiming him?

Another team could have claimed him on waivers, but the Pistons knew that was extremely unlikely given his age, playing time, and salary. They were shocked when NJ claimed him after Utah waived him after the arroyo trade earlier in the year - they were expecting to get him back then. I'm still not sure why NJ claimed him - if it was to spite the pistons, they would not have waived him late in the year. The impression I get is that they claimed him partly to be mean, partly because they thought he might be a useful body to have around, and that they basically relented at the end and waived him at his request.
