Always Wear Your Seatbelt

Always Wear Your Seatbelt

Police figures show that almost 1 in 4 of fatalities in Lancashire from road traffic accidents were not wearing a seatbelt. Out of the fatalities in Lancashire from 1st January 2009 until 1st November 2011, 23% were not wearing a seatbelt (Source: Lancashire Constabulary).

It is also against the law for drivers or passengers to fail to wear seatbelts and you could face an on the spot fine of £60, and a maximum fine of £500 if prosecuted. Despite this, evidence shows that people are less likely to use seatbelts on familiar or short journeys.
