Q: Would not wearing a seatbelt have a big impact in Chinese court?

Was the front passenger in a taxi car crash and I'm trying to sue the company for damages. Problem is as most taxis don't have seatbelts I didn't even think to check if there was one, and therefore wasn't wearing one during the crash. Anyone know if this would dramatically affect court findings as in Europe its purely the driver's responsibility.

Wearing a seatbelt is required by law now which can result in 2 points off your license if caught. I'm not sure about the driver's responsibility for passengers, but I've had taxi drivers require me to buckle my seatbelt before. If your taxi didn't have a functioning seatbelt, then that would probably be material to a suit. However if the taxi did have a functioning seatbelt then I'm not sure if it's your fault or not.

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
