Definitely a blasphemy. Here’s another fun fact about US regulations: When a car is given it’s crash test safety rating, it’s based off the passengers not wearing seat belts. So not only does your car have to be safe, it has to be while you’re not wearing the belt. Every other country bases their ratings on the passengers wearing seat belts. (Bashing my forehead on the dash when Dad slammed on the brakes taught me at an early age about wearing seat belts) I also find it interesting to note that while vehicle safety standards keep going up, so do traffic fatalities. So perhaps these safety measures aren’t as effective as we are led to believe.
