The DGT has slammed drivers who do not make children passengers wear seatbelts, after the latest safety campaign by the Guardia Civil.

Nearly 200 children were discovered to be in a vehicle without wearing a seatbelt during the week long nationwide campaign.

In total 330,000 vehicles were monitored, with 3,183 drivers stopped for not using the safety device – the majority on back roads and not on the main road network. They can expect prosecution for not using a seat belt.
