MOTORISTS who fail to wear seatbelts while driving are being targeted by police during a week-long campaign launched on Monday (February 18).
Pc Tony Barrios, said: "A seatbelt can mean the difference between life and death and it astonishes me that some people continue to risk their lives by not belting up.
"Putting on your seatbelt should be part of your routine before even starting your car and drivers should be responsible for ensuring all passengers wear them, too."
Last year, 4,337 drivers across the country were fined £30 for not wearing a seatbelt.

Pc Barrios added: "Last year saw the number of fatal collisions at its highest for seven years and we are determined to reduce this over the next year.
"Part of this work is to ensure the laws of the roads are adhered to and those who continue to ignore the law will be targeted."
