Cambridgeshire Police back national seatbelt campaign in bid to save lives
In a bid to reduce to the number of people killed and seriously injured on the county’s roads, Cambridgeshire Constabulary is backing a national seatbelt campaign which starts on June 29.
People who did not wear a seatbelt and were involved in a Cambridgeshire collision in the past three years were 11 times more likely to be killed or seriously hurt than they were to sustain slight injuries.
Last year alone, 390 tickets – more than one a day - were issued to people in Cambridgeshire for not wearing a seatbelt. Evidence shows that men are six times more likely to not wear a seatbelt compared to women.
