Cotswolds drivers get seat belt reminder

Wed, 13 Aug 2008
Motorists travelling in the Cotswolds have been reminded to wear their seat belts at all times, according to a local news source.

The Cotswold Journal has stated that officers in the region recently raised the issue at a residents' meeting.

By buckling up when they travel, drivers may be saving on their car insurance policies, as those found to be neglecting the rule could be considered a risk and subsequently land a more expensive cover bill.

Local Police Constable Gary Brewer said that he believes this disregard of the rules is behind a number of the region's collisions.

"An alarming number of people [are] not wearing a seat belt ... Most of the fatal road traffic accidents I go to are caused by people not wearing seat belts," he said.

The original law on wearing a seat belt while driving was introduced in 1982, nine years before all passengers were legally required to buckle up.
