Seatbelt warning to motorists in South-West
12:30pm Monday 18th March 2013 in Mid Devon News
A WARNING has gone out to motorists after new figures revealed one in four cars contain at least one person still failing to wear a seatbelt.
The statistics, from Somerset Road Safety, come as part of Avon and Somerset Police's Operation Relentless, aiming to keep people safe on the roads.
Local police have joined a week-long Europe-wide road safety campaign, which began on Monday.
Mobile patrols will be on the lookout for law breakers and sending out the message that seatbelts should be worn at all times.
Police and Somerset Road Safety are holding seminars for those caught not wearing a seatbelt at police roadside checks.
