Over 122,000 penalties issued in European seatbelt campaign

By / 7 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Officers in 23 countries across Europe stopped vehicle occupants of all ages who were observed not using seatbelts.

The campaign in February was co-ordinated by TISPOL, the pan-European traffic police organisation.

TISPOL president Javier Sanchez Ferragut said: 'It is well documented that seatbelts significantly reduce the loss of life and degree of severe injury in the event of a road traffic collision. Research provides us with the valuable knowledge that seatbelts save lives.  Where vehicle occupants choose not to wear a seatbelt, the law is clear and the police enforce the law as we know lives are saved as a result of seatbelt enforcement. Those people who chose not to wear a seatbelt expose themselves and their fellow passengers to the risk of fatal or serious injury cosequences.'
