What is the penalty for not wearing a seat belt? A £100 fine.
Safety camera vans are now enforcing drivers who do not wear a seat belt, as well as drivers using a mobile phone and speeding motorists.
Camera operators trigger the laser camera when they see these offences being committed and they are recorded on the DVD system as evidence. The DVD then goes to the Driver Diversion Team where staff send a request for driver information to the registered keeper of the vehicle.
Anyone exempt from wearing a seat belt will be able to state this on the request for driver information and, if relevant, send a copy of their exemption certificate.
