Last I heard, New Hampshire is the only state in the U.S. not to have passed laws making adults (driver, as well as passenger/s) in automobiles subject to a fine. This began with driver's who had been stopped for moving violations, or otherwise, facing legal penalty for not wearing safety belts. However, as of now, law enforcement in many states may pull vehicles over and issue citations if the officer feels a driver/passengers are neglecting to wear their safety belts.
