I like that our 10 states won't stop idiots who choose not to buckle-up and that New Hampshire people know its none of their business to fight stupidity in the seat-belt department.  Still, we've got a long ways to go to stop nannyism in any state we may choose.  How far and how long and how wide the nanny state reach is in each of our states?


Here's one example of that measurement:
