Thumbs up during seatbelt and booster seat checks at a Banbury school
Most drivers and passengers in vehicles were seated and belted correctly
It was a thumbs up for the majority of parents during a spot check to make sure people were following the rules and wearing seatbelts at a Banbury school yesterday.
Officers from Thames Valley Police’s Roads Policing team were at Orchard Fields Community School on Bretch Hill on Tuesday morning. As part of the #StandingUpForBeltingUp campaign during what is Child Safety Week, spot checks are taking place to ensure drivers and passengers are correctly wearing seat belts.
Where a child under 135cm tall is travelling in the car parents must use a child seat or booster and this was also examined.
Officers were pleased to see the majority of people were following the rules correctly. Writing on social media they said: “Most drivers and their passengers were wearing a seat belt today.
“Some children should still be in a child seat or booster seat if under 135cm.
“Lots of positive engagement, education and some enforcement.”
