Over 600 people were fined for putting their lives at risk of a potential ‘horrific consequence’ by not wearing seatbelts in Hertfordshire last year.
Police have today revealed that from January 2016 to November 2016, 648 people were fined by Hertfordshire Constabulary for not wearing a seatbelt.
In February 2016 160 people were caught not wearing a seatbelt, in the month before only 24 people were caught and issued fines.
Traffic Sergeant Ian Manley, from the Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “You are much more likely to be involved in a fatal road collision if you’re not wearing this life-saving piece of equipment.
“The consequences of not wearing a belt when involved in a collision are potentially horrific.
