How many states in the U.S. can an adult still legally drive without wearing a seatbelt?
Now, here's the deal folks, there are several states in the U.S. where a cop cannot pull you over for not wearing a seatbelt. However, if he pulls you over for something else and you aren't wearing a seatbelt, you can get a ticket. It's called a secondary law. A primary seatbelt law means that you can get pulled over simply for not wearing a seatbelt and 38 states have primary seat belt laws. New Hampshire is the only state in the U.S. where there are no laws for adults that require them to wear a seatbelt. However, we say, if you want to keep your face intact, you may want to buckle up, regardless. Source: The Governors Highway Safety Association and the Edgar Snyder & Associates Law Firm
