We all know the famous laws of physics.
But, when it comes to driving, there are some laws that may not apply to everyone.
Newton’s laws apply only to automobiles, and even then, they’re fairly strict.
These laws are named after Newton, a British physicist who was born in 1692.
The laws say that a person’s velocity must be the same as that of the center of mass of the car, and it’s possible to lose control of your car by slamming the accelerator pedal too hard.
When the laws apply to driving in general, the car’s center of gravity must be in line with the centerline of the roadway, and the steering wheel must be centered on the center.
Newton, though, is not the only person to use the laws.
Some of the more famous people who’ve used Newton’s law to keep themselves safe in traffic include: The late comedian Robin Williams, who was known to often make poor choices in his car while cruising around New York City.
The late rocker Chuck Berry, who had a long career in the 1960s and 1970s, who often had to deal with traffic violations and accidents while driving.
The actor, comedian and actor Tom Selleck, who died in 2017.
And now, a law that can affect your safety while driving could have you in trouble.
According to The New York Times, the Massachusetts legislature passed a bill this week that will require all drivers in Massachusetts to wear seatbelts.
If you’re in a car that’s equipped with an automatic transmission, the law will require that you wear the seatbelt when the car is stopped for a police officer or other person.
The Times reported that the law would affect drivers in a wide variety of cars.
The law is in response to a police shooting of a motorist in Massachusetts last year that left a 32-year-old man paralyzed from the neck down.
The man was driving his car when a police cruiser pulled up in front of his vehicle.
The car’s driver was later charged with reckless driving and vehicular homicide.
The driver of the vehicle involved in the shooting, Michael Slager, was charged with second-degree murder.
The victim of the shooting was a black man.
The officer in the incident was a white officer.
Both Slager and the officer in charge of the police cruiser were white.
The police officer who pulled the trigger was a woman.
Both were shot by Slager.
The Massachusetts law would not affect the driver of Slager’s car.
“This law is going to make it much more difficult for people to drive without seatbelters,” said Michael Gerson, a professor of physics at Harvard University who wrote a book about the laws of Newton.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty in what that law actually means.
We can’t say whether it would prevent the shooting of this individual, or whether it wouldn’t prevent the killing of this officer, or even what it would mean in terms of preventing future killings.”
Slager was a former member of the U.S. military, and his military vehicle had been equipped with a seatbelt.
According the Boston Globe, he has a criminal history, and in 2013, he was convicted of possession of an unregistered firearm, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, possession with intent to distribute ammunition and possession of a firearm by a felon.
“I was looking forward to being a police cop for the rest of my life, and then I got a gun and I shot a black guy,” Slager told reporters in 2015.
“If I hadn’t had my gun, I probably would have died that day.”
Gerson said the law might also affect some people who drive under the influence.
“The people who have been driving under the drugs of alcohol, or the alcohol of marijuana, they can’t drive safely.
And the people who are driving under a strong driving under influence, and a strong alcohol or marijuana influence, they don’t necessarily know how to drive,” he said.
The state is expected to take up the issue of mandatory seatbelting laws next week, when legislators will consider a bill that would require drivers in certain states to wear them.
“It’s a common-sense approach to keeping our roads safe,” Massachusetts Senator James M. Inhofe said in a statement.
“And as long as the driver is wearing a seat belt, they are safer.”
The law passed the Massachusetts Senate by a vote of 24-13 on Wednesday.
The bill will now go to the House, where it could be amended to include other vehicle safety measures.
