Gardaí clamping down on seatbelt use throughout Kildare today

Kildare Gardai will be conducting seatbelt checks throughout the county today (September 11) and tomorrow (September 12) as part of an international operation.

The Europe-wide operation is co-ordinated by TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network.

The EU Child Safety Protection Laws are in force, making it compulsory for all children to travel in the correct child seat, booster seat or booster cushion.

Where safety belts have been fitted they must be worn by all vehicle occupants Vehicle occupants who do not wear their seatbelt will be issued with a penalty.
