The seat belt laws might be inevitable due to the driving habits of our southern neighbors.
Property taxes and everything in general costs more in the Northeast corridor, but NH doesn't have alot of the costs that other states in our vicinity have.

I assume by 'southern neighbors', you are referring to M*ssholechusetts and Rhode Island; recently ranked as the #1 and #2 worst drivers in the nation (although I listed them backwards, RI was #1).

Dirty South? I concur with regards to the amount of trash on the side of any road that wasn't an Interstate.
