Hawke’s Bay Police urge motorists to wear seatbelt

Hawke’s Bay Police are frustrated and concerned that the message to wear your seatbelt is not getting through to drivers in the area.

“Over the last month a number of seatbelt checks have been carried out in the Hawke’s Bay area. In a total of 10 hours, a staggering 170 people were issued with infringement notices for failing to wear their seatbelt,” Eastern District Road Policing Prevention Manager Senior Sergeant Dan Foley says.

“A significant number were also ticketed for using cell phones.”
