In the UK, we don't drive with our headlights on unless we experience inclement weather, or we are on a motorcycle, or unless it is, of course, dark.

Yeah that's what I was talking about. In Canada, almost all cars are like that since the early 90s. However, you still need to turn on your lights when they're needed (e.g. at night). These daylight running lights are especially made for visibility, and aren't as bright as fully turned on lights.

In Hong Kong, all passenger cars must equip front and back seat seatbelt and is required to buckle for all passengers and driver. for those who doesn't buckle up, s/he will be ticketed, both passenger and driver. the driver is responsible to ensure passenger on board buckled up. same rule applies to taxi.

There is hip belt in mini-buses as well. passengers are required by law. if not, they can be fined and possible be jailed.

---------------------------------
Daytime headlight is more for other road users to see you better and be more alert, it's not for you to see others. Studies have found that daytime headlight can reduce accident occurrence.

Only in that case? Its the same here,as mentioned...driver responsible for all. Everybody,regardless of age,height,weight,front or back seat, should always use seatbelt.

Something is wrong with your statement.
For all intents and purposes, we are EU members: We're a part of the inner market through the EEA agreement (and as such, have to accept or veto EU legislation - the latter has never happened...), we're Schengen members, we're better at conforming to EU regulations than most EU countries... You get my drift, I hope.

Some years ago, an EU directive was issued which said that one couldn't force car manufacturers to include such a system and that no EU/EEA country could refuse the sale of cars without such a system. Norway chose not to fight the directive. Apparently, Sweden did and won.

The blue marked European countries in this map have laws that make the use of headlights mandatory during daytime (might be limited to certain road types):



The map was taken from wikipedia.

Russia has, but Kaliningrad hasn't such rules? Looks like a mistake to me.

Bosnia and Herzegovina also has a law requiring headlights to be on at all times.

And the passengers in the back seat would easily kill the ones at front when flying forward with massive energy.
