Drivers who don’t wear a seat belt could face points

 

The Department for Transport is considering whether to change the law so drivers get points on their licences for failing to wear a seatbelt. The move would form part of a new action plan on road safety. At present, motorists can be fined up to £500 for failing to wear a seat belt. Jesse Norman, the road safety minister, said: “Failure to wear a seat belt is illegal and dangerous, and can have devastating consequences. The Government has been actively looking at whether to introduce penalty points to help stop this reckless behaviour as part of the forthcoming Road Safety Action Plan.”
