More than 250 drivers were caught not wearing a seatbelt in a week-long crackdown.
Cambridgeshire police issued 252 motorists with a £60 fine for not wearing a seatbelt or having passengers without seatbelts between Monday, September 10, and Sunday, September 16.
Officers also fined seven drivers for having children under 14 without a seatbelt.
The campaign was part of a Europe-wide initiative organised by Traffic Information System Police (TISPOL).
PC Steve Gedny, casualty reduction officer, said: “There were seven drivers fined for having children under 14 without a seat belt.
“Not only are they putting the children’s lives at risk, but also other people in the car.
“Seatbelts are a simple but life-saving device and it is against the law to travel without one.
“I would like to remind drivers that it is their responsibility to ensure young passengers are wearing seatbelts.”
