Police are reminding motorists that wearing a seatbelt can be the difference between life and death.

Cumbria Constabulary are part of the Casualty Reduction and Safer Highways Group which throughout the year work together in order to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on the county’s roads. This month the focus is on the use of seatbelts and child restraints working in line with TISPOL’s European Seatbelt Enforcement Operation.

Officers from the Operational Support Unit alongside officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Teams will patrol the county’s roads conducting high visibility stop checks, covert patrols and also static speed checks, particularly focusing on peak times for commuting as more vehicles are on the road following the end of the school summer holidays.
