Department for Transport written question – answered on 27th October 2022.
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment she has made of the potential merits of introducing penalty points for people who fail to wear a seatbelt.
The Department for Transport knows that in 2021, in 30% of all car occupant fatalities recorded, seat belts were not worn. This is unacceptably high, and we have been considering options to tackle this including the potential merits of introducing penalty points. This might form part of the Department for Transports planned call for evidence on motoring offences.
