Motorists given seatbelt warning
Derbyshire Police have warned drivers and passengers they risk a fine if they are caught not wearing a seatbelt as part of a new crackdown.

Four hundred people were stopped and fined during a similar police operation in 2006.

Officers said many people were still refusing to wear a seatbelt on the county's roads.

Chf Supt Lynne Harris said she hoped the message would get through during this year's four week clampdown.

She said: "We don't want to see 400 people or anywhere near that number.

"What we'd like people to do is understand that people who don't wear seatbelts, if they have a collision, then there is more chance of getting more seriously injured or killed."
