I just looked up 3M traffic lights, and I've seen a few of those in Portugal, pedestrians crossings especially, but none in the UK.

Then i think they should put up some heating thing on or next to traffic lights. When there's no snow, light bulbs are a complete waste of energy, money and CO2

Are people in the US stupid or is it just the people at the DOT's that are??
Wearing seatbelts is the law in all countries that has roads. I haven't seen a such sign anywhere in Europe (except at border crossings), so why do the americans need one??

To encourage more people to use seatbelts. They're just motto signs, we have them all over the Netherlands as well.

Yes, luckily I'm not the only one

My point is: if you don't know that you're should use seatbelts, then i don't think you're supposed to have no drivers license.

What's the big deal with the seatbelts? I was told once by my mother and once by my driving instructor that I must wear a seatbelt. Ever since it was like a natural reflex for me to fasten the seatbelt any time I get into the car. Why is it a problem to some?
