Tráfico is carrying out a Seatbelt and Child Seat Control Campaign nationally from today. The campaign will last until this Saturday, 16 September, and will see police checkpoints pulling cars over to to check that seatbelts are being used and are functioning properly, and that any child seating is appropriate and being used correctly.
Readers regularly comment that it’s about time they policed the roads, but of course they do that all year round. This and other similar types of campaign are just an additional specific focus on particular issues, whether seatbelts, drink driving, vehicle integrity, etc. Over the next week, drivers can therefore expect to see extra control points, with some 25,000 control checks carried out daily, on all types of roads.
