\nseat belts are designed to snap in the event of an accident at 40-mph. Most accidents do not happen at 40-mph because you slam on the brakes. A set belt would protect you fr…om flying forward after slamming on the brakes or incase the air bag is not working.
Children up to certain weights are required to be in car seats that are held in place with the seat belts in most states. After they reach a certain weight, they are required …to wear seat belts, so not only can children wear seat belts, after they no longer are required to be in car seats, they are required to wear a seat belt.
Let's get one thing straight first off: you should wear a seat belt in the rear seat, as it significantly increases the likelihood of avoiding death or serious injury in a c…rash. That said, the law varies. Some states mandate the use of seat belts in all seats, others only in the front; some allow police officers to pull you over for not wearing a seat belt and in others you can be ticketed for not wearing one, but only if the officer pulls you over for some other violation. Age can be a factor as well. There's a link in the Related Links section that provides additional details.

In most states, yes, adults can be fined/ticketed for not adheringto proper child restraint laws. (It's the law in all 50 states;however, in some states, that would not be the… only reason a driverwould be pulled over.)
yes if the car is equipped with seat belts.
Yes But only if you want to increase your chances of survival
Because if had a crash you would ether hit a seat or come flying out on the window
No, and adults aren't either. Its way to dangerous.
This can vary depending on if seat belt use is required by law but rule of thumb is: If the car came equipped with the shoulder belt it must be used.
In the old days seatbelts were optional so most people never worethem. Unfortunately a lot of people died in car accidents. Mostpeople who died in car accidents didn't wear th…eir seatbelts. Inthe late 80's the government past the law that children had to weartheir seatbelts but adults didn't have to. A few months or a fewyears later they past a law that adults had to wear theirseatbelts. Seatbelts save lives but there's still a chance that youcan die in a car crash anyway but it reduces your chances by 80%.
