I think in New York only the front passengers are required to wear a seatbelt, as well. At least when I was there around 2 months ago, my relatives (who live there) found it strange when I fastened while sitting in the back (since in Ontario we are required to put them on no matter where we sit).

That is sad.

TheCat- Here in Portugal they are obligatory but most people don't use them in the back.

In the first six months of 2007, there were 23 traffic deaths in Harju region, Estonia. 1 of them wore a seatbelt.

That's a very confronting commercial, but if it gets the job done: sure!

Many people are totally unaware what forces are in play on one's body when a car suddenly comes to a standstill... The excuse that a seatbelt would actually give less chance of survival has been used in the past by several car designers, but I'm amazed some still believe in these lies

Because it's simply way too confrontating. Just like for instance the stuff they put on cigarettes nowadays. There are other ways to make clear wearing seatbelts is much safer. Children will also watch this. And I don't think there are much people who don't wear seatbelts that aren't aware of the bigger risks. But that's just their own fault. There's only one way to protect people better to themselves: more police control and raising fines (in Holland it's only €45).

You can confrontate without directly show the real result of it like in this commercials. For instance, a few weeks ago I saw in Belgium a sign with a close-up from a face of a little child with a text something like "Papa, ne roulez pas trop vite" (Daddy, don't drive too fast)

They surely do. I'm not a father, so I don't know what it is to have kids, but I got it immediatly. People who don't wear safety belts are mostly not "stupid folks". It's just a bad habit, that's all.

Here you can't be stopped for not wearing a seatbelt, and there is no daytime running light law but almost absolutely all cars have DRLs.

Spain is such a weird country for this issue. If you have your lights on during daytime, everybody will warn you about it. But man, if you forget to put them on during nightime many people will consider rude to tell it to you. There are even urban leyends about people who warned a car with its lights off at midnight and consequently the car started a chase to kill them.

About seatbelts, of course it's compulsory in Spain but there are still some buses without them.
