MORE than 750 motorists were caught in Cambridgeshire failing to wear a seatbelt last month.
During March, 755 motorists were given £60 fixed penalty notices.
Last year 2,765 drivers caught not wearing a seatbelt were issued with fixed penalty notices.
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.
