'Seatbelt cameras' in operation from Monday
11 September 2017 @ 18:54

Fifty traffic cameras which will be able to tell if drivers and passengers are wearing seatbelts have been set up across Spain, and more are set to follow over the next few months.

Anyone caught on camera not strapped in will face a fine of up to €200 and lose three points from their licence.

But the national traffic authorities, the DGT, says for the first two months, the cameras will only be used to 'warn' offenders rather than to issue fines.

According to DGT boss Gregorio Serrano, seatbelts are 'the most important passive safety element in a vehicle', and reduces the likelihood of an accident being fatal by 60%.
