You may have heard of the “driving in winter” rule: “When driving in winter, wear a helmet, turn off your cell phone and wear light clothing.”
But if you’re heading into snow, ice, and fog, you might be stuck with this rule for a while.
While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says you can still legally drive in winter conditions, there’s been a lot of debate as to whether it is really necessary for a driver to wear a “safety belt”.
“This rule has been used for decades,” says Bill Johnson, who heads the National Traffic Safety Coalition.
“It has been accepted as law for the last 25 years.”
“The rule says, ‘When driving, wear your seatbelt,'” says Johnson.
“But the problem is, you can get into a situation where you’re not wearing your seatbelts.”
The rules were passed in the early 1980s and were designed to protect the public from “uncontrolled winter weather conditions”.
Drivers were required to wear safety belts on the left side of their vehicles, and to wear the seatbelt in both front and rear.
However, the NHTSA says that it is still possible to get into an accident and be killed or injured when you are wearing your “safety belts” on your right side, but not your left.
“I’ve heard that some people don’t want to wear them on their right side,” says Johnson, pointing to the safety belts being too short.
If you’re traveling in the south, however, the rules might change.
For now, you may want to avoid the rule, because the rule may be no longer necessary.
“The NHTSC [National Highway Traffic System] has taken action to ensure that a vehicle equipped with a seatbelt is designed to prevent accidental or intentional crashes,” reads a news release from the NHS.
The rule was adopted in 1991 and still applies to the majority of cars, vans, and SUVs.
It applies to vehicles that are equipped with an airbag, seatbelt, or airbag self-belay system, but does not apply to vehicles without any of these features.
According to the NHDSA, there are several reasons that seatbelting is more difficult than wearing a safety belt.
Firstly, the airbag systems on a vehicle are very small and don’t expand to fill the space that the belt would be needed to fill.
Secondly, airbags are designed to deploy in the event of an accident.
In addition, it can be very difficult to get the car into the proper “safe driving” position, which is a position where the vehicle’s steering wheel is perpendicular to the ground, so that the car is on the right side of the road.
Finally, there is a very high risk of injury if you are not wearing a seat belt on your left side.
So what can you do to avoid being put in an accident?
According a NHTS spokesperson, there have been two types of seatbelt guidelines in use for more than 30 years.
First, the standard guideline for the US states that the seat belt must be in the “full or partial line” of the driver’s position.
This means that if the car has an airbags system, it must be “on the full or partial right side”.
Second, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) states that it has no standard that applies to all vehicles.
Instead, it says that each vehicle should be judged on its own merits.
Therefore, the ANSI guidelines don’t apply to all cars or vans.
You should always keep your eyes peeled for these types of “safety guidelines” as well.
As always, be sure to let us know if you see any of the above issues.
