MORE than 750 drivers in the county were caught not wearing a seatbelt during a month-long campaign.
Cambridgeshire police officers cracked down on the offence and handed out 755 £60 fixed penalty notices in March.
Pc Steve Gedny, casualty reduction officer, said: “Motorists are risking their lives and the lives of their passengers by failing to wear a seatbelt.
“Putting your seatbelt on should be part of your routine before even starting your vehicle and drivers should be responsible for ensuring all passengers wear theirs.
“Roads can be a dangerous place when the law is not respected and adhered to. If we are to reduce the number of fatalities and casualties on the county’s roads it is vital people comply with the law.”
