Strap in to save lives - it's Seatbelt Week
With an estimated two million drivers in the UK still not wearing a seatbelt when they’re driving, Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) is reminding road users of the dangers of not belting up in their cars.
Along with colleagues at Surrey and Sussex Police’s Roads Policing Unit (RPU) and Surrey’s Drive SMART, SSRP want to reach the last 5% of drivers who do not see the benefits of seatbelts. There is a week dedicated to this, running from March 12-18, which has been implemented by TISPOL, the European Traffic Policing Network.
Although this week is still very much business as usual and enforcing this law is a daily occurrence for RPU, it does give an opportunity to raise awareness to a demographic of ignorant drivers. Read more here: https://www.sussex.police.uk/news/strap-in-to-save-lives-its-seatbelt-week/
