The use of a seat belt for adults is not mandatory in every state of the US. For example, New Hampshire does not have a seat belt law at all while some other states only have law for seat belts in the front seat and not in the rear.

Article about New Hampshire

Very interesting article about that

The people of New Hamphire do not want to get told what to do. That's the whole point. Another interesting thing is the difference between the primary seat belt law and the secondary seat belt law which is mentioned at the end of that article. So even if you do not wear a seat belt which is against the law in some cases the police is not authorized to stop you.

That picture is an odd choice for a Christmas card.

A lot of words spring to mind when I see this particular view, but 'merry' isn't one of them.

Yeah, but I hardly have any roadpics with snow, so I chose this one. It has got something to do with congestion, so I chose this one

Oh, magic glasses ... where they were on Saturday?

Luckily, I drove over this rural road about a million times before, so I didn't choose ditch on left or right side.

Once, about three years ago, I couldn't see the left edge of the road because it had been snowing, and I almost drove into the ditch. My back two wheels were actually gone from the road, but I managed to get back up without any visible damage to the car. Which wasn't mine...

I think it's thing of personal choice, it's my responsibility, I should not be told what I have to do, if I don't want to wear seatbelt it's my responsibility if I will hurt somebody in accident or when I crash into some three alone and will have to pay all hospital expenses, but it should be really thing of personal choice, same with ilegal drugs, if I want risk my health it's my choice and I don't want state what to do if I'm not interfering other one's freedom. Rob a store is interfering other's rights, kill someone is interfering other's rights, but that I want smoke joint can hurt only me and mostly it's same with wearing seatbelts (of course not in case when my body fly outside of car and hurt somebody else at accident). I'm wearing seatbelt always and am pissed of when somebody on back seats is not wearing, because if he wan't to die it's his choice, but not when his body kill me when flying to front part of interior. But it's not surprise people in socialist Europe don't understand meaning of personal freedom and own responsibility instead of state hugging and caring everyone even if he doesn't want to be.
