    That has nothing to do with the police other then to put in their accident report whether the occupants were wearing seat belts or not.

    And wearing seat belts has little if anything to do with causing an accident.

    Just make it that insurance is higher for those that don't wear seat belts - and if they lie and later found they were not wearing a seat belt, that would mean a reduction in their settlement.

    Because it needs to be proven and yet can't be.

    Physics doesn't care about accident reports or insurance rates.

    Yes, I know, it's in the title of the thread. And seat belt laws are good, because physics will determine that somebody driving a 2 ton (or more) vehicle will be more in control while wearing their seatbelt than somebody not wearing it.

    Until you can show that the individual not wearing a seat belt does not just do it for his own happiness, but instead because of malice toward others you have no case to present.

    Physics doesn't care about malice. Your intent could be world peace and physics still wouldn't care.

    Physics is just that, physics. It has nothing to do with intent. Prove intent.
