Seatbelt enforcement campaign set for launch in Cambridgeshire
POLICE will launch a week long enforcement campaign on Monday (March 12) to target those who don’t wear seatbelts when travelling on the county’s roads.
The initiative is part of a campaign across Europe organised by TISPOL (Traffic Information System Police).
Drivers found breaking the law will be given a �60 fixed penalty notice.
Steve Gedny, Cambridgeshire Constabulary’s casualty reduction officer, said: “Seatbelts save lives and it astonishes me that some people continue to risk theirs by not buckling up.
“Putting your seatbelt on should be part of your routine before even starting your car and drivers should be responsible for ensuring all passengers wear theirs.

“If you don’t wear your seatbelt you could be the one that causes serious injuries to those who are wearing them.
“This campaign is not just about fining people for breaking the law, it’s also about giving them valuable advice which could save their life.”
