Scores stopped in seatbelt campaign

Cheshire police stopped more than 60 motorists for not wearing seatbelts in week-long national campaign

Inspector Steve Griffiths, of Cheshire Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit, said: “In the space of a week officers stopped and dealt with more than 60 motorists who failed to protect themselves by wearing a seatbelt.

“It is this simple – if any of these people had been in a road traffic collision last week, their risk of death would have dramatically increased and officers could have been delivering tragic news to their families. It is therefore imperative that drivers and their passengers realise they are not invincible and are made fully aware of the huge risks and dangers they face.

“Even though the campaign has come to an end, our work continues to highlight the consequences and ensure that anyone found not wearing a seatbelt is issued advice and will receive a £100 fixed penalty notice.”
