Q: Why go through so much trouble to avoid wearing a seatbelt?

http://www.chinasmack.com/2013/videos/mans-affair-exposed-on-tv-when-sto...

 

Isn't it more inconvenient and disadvantageous to fake the seatbelt strap with a man purse, or buying shirts with strap prints on them, and then sit uncomfortably on the locked seatbelt? Does it really impede with their freedom? They probably think it's rebellious and exciting to do so? Same with the situation where the wife avoids the nearby crosswalk, near the end of the video

I am inclined to agree. How pathetic. Having a satchel strapped on while driving would feel more awkward than wearing a seatbelt.

 

He's trying to impress his girlfriend with his rebellious nature, while not being brave enough to actually display it.

Look at products like this http://www.bulltao.com.au/product/pid-18873369896.html?ul=10 I have been in cars where the seatbelt alarm is sounding loudly while they drive and they just increase there jabbering instead of wearing the f-ing belt. And those who do wear it will take it off as soon as the car is slowing down. 

To those who do not wear seatbelts say "Stand 5 meters from a wall, blindfold yourself, start walking"..."Do you think that would hurt? Try running" The try to smack against something at 50km/h. 

The lack of seatbelt use is the biggest conundrum for me in China. COLD WATER, are you insane, but wearing the one thing that is proven to save lives they just don't. The education level sure lacks.

angryClick it or ticket was a popular saying! Don't drink and drive! Not wearing your seatbelt is pretty dumb. If you drink and drive and don't wear your seat belt that's just retarded!! 

 

Ha ha, I said: "seat belt" too!

When I started my career as a reporter I worked in a couple small towns alongside the highway for about two years. In that time I saw alot of fatal accidents. I'd say about 50 per cent of the time everyone in the car was fine except the one dead guy who wasn't wearing his seatbelt.

It is all the west's fault. If they hadn't invented seatbelts, the Chinese wouldn't have to refuse wearing them as a protest against the west's century of shame.

 

It seems that no matter what rule there is, the Chinese will deliberately do something to cheat their way around that rule. This applies also with any law or term of a contract. Every aspect of life in China is about cheating or fooling someone about something.

 

Invariably, it backfires 10-fold or more. It is arrogance born of sheer stupidity, and no doubt he will do it again, just to prove a point - that he is smarter than the police.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
