There are not many cars still on American roads that do not have seat belts installed. Nearly all of them are all-terrain vehicles or other special use vehicles. Seat belts are generally considered a lifesaving device, although people in the Granite State have the option of not using them.
New Hampshire is a small U.S. state but has quite a few roads crossing it. As a result, the Granite State is the location of several motor vehicle accidents every month. Many are the results of chance accidents, while others may be caused by distracted driving or reckless behavior on the road.

There is always a chance of damage or injury when people take to the roads in cars, trucks, motorcycles and other motor vehicles in New Hampshire.

Speed and reckless driving are often factors in serious accidents, especially in developed areas, and a recent case saw a driver compound irresponsible actions with injury and theft.
