Why is car insurance and seat belts required in most states?

Seat belts were brought in to save lives, which they have done very effectively, particularly for children. With cars the inherent problem is that it's possible that you won't just injury yourself or just wreck your car: you can hurt others physically and financially as well. Those laws are the result of such clashes, I imagine.

Ok so I understand if your underage yea it probably should be a law for you to buckle up but if your a legal adult (over 18) why should you have to buckle up? Your not putting anyone else in harms way but yourself. Shouldn't it be something I decide and not the government and why are they deciding...
