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.

“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.”
