Drivers urged to ‘belt up’

2nd July 2020

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert, is backing Gwent Police’s call for motorists to wear their seat belts.

He said: “Last year a quarter of all people who were killed in road traffic collisions in Gwent were not wearing a seat belt.

“There is no doubt at all that seat belts save lives and help prevent serious injury.

“Failure to wear a seat belt can result in an on-the-spot fine of £100. If prosecuted the maximum fine is £500.

“So please, don’t put your own and others’ lives at risk, stay safe and belt up.”
