Police crackdown catches more than 100 Cambridgeshire drivers without seatbelts
MORE than 100 drivers in Cambridgeshire were caught without a seatbelt during a week-long campaign.
Officers issued 103 drivers with a �60 fine for the offence while also recording 10 adult passengers and three children not wearing seatbelts.
The initiative, which took place from February 14-21, was part a campaign across Europe organised by the Traffic Information System Police (TISPOL).
PC Tony Barrios, casualty reduction officer, said: “It is shocking that so many drivers in Cambridgeshire are still putting their lives at risk by refusing to wear a seatbelt.
“They are a simple but life-saving device and it is against the law to travel without one.
“It is especially worrying that young children are not being strapped in. We would like to remind drivers that it is their responsibility not to put young people’s lives at risk in this way.”
