MOTORISTS not buckling up behind the wheel have been made to pay the price following a week-long safety campaign.

More than 100 people across Hertfordshire were caught between driving without a seat belt

The campaign was run in co-ordination with European Police Traffic Network to alert people to the dangers of driving without taking proper safety precautions.

Each of the 114 people caught were fined �30.

He said: "It is astounding so many people continue to risk their safety and that of others by not doing what is second nature to most of us; putting on a seat belt."
