Seatbelts Are The Difference Between Life And Death

Seatbelts Are The Difference Between Life And Death

Police officers in Northamptonshire are warning the public that the difference between life and death in a road traffic collision can often be down to whether you are wearing a seatbelt or not.

A two-week-long operation starting on Monday, March 11, will target people who fail to wear their seatbelts while on the roads. Those found to not be wearing one will face further action.

Over the course of the operation, officers from across the Force, including enforcement vehicles, will be out and about across the County, looking for anyone who isn't belted up. More »

Every year, seatbelt use in passenger vehicles saves more than 10,000 lives. People not wearing a seat belt are 30 times more likely to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash and more than 3 out of 4 people who are ejected during a fatal crash die from their injuries.

Seatbelts work in conjunction with other car safety features including airbags - it's important to wear your seatbelt correctly as intended by the manufacturers.

PC Dave Lee of Northamptonshire Police's Safer Roads Team, said: "Wearing a seatbelt in a car is such a basic piece of road safety advice that it amazes me that some people still fail to use one. This also applies to people not wearing their seatbelt correctly.

"For the next two weeks, we will be out and about across the County looking for people who can't spend five seconds putting their seatbelt on. The penalties people may face can include a fixed penalty fine and in some cases, a court appearance.

"Please take responsibility for your personal safety on the roads – having attended a number of fatal road traffic collisions where people have been ejected from the car following the crash, I can tell you that the consequences of not wearing a seatbelt just aren't worth contemplating. Please belt up."

District council sets final budget

District council sets final budget

A budget to protect and grow the environment, communities and businesses while seeing the district through the reorganisation of local government in Northamptonshire, has been approved by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).Set alongside its 2019/20 Business Plan, SNC approved a budget of £14.6million to deliver services to the 36,067 households in the district; including waste and recycling, street cleaning, planning, housing, economic growth and leisure services.That equates to £191.33 for the average Band D home, up from £185.78 in 2018/19 and an increase of just over 10p a week.Cllr Peter Rawlinson, SNC's portfolio holder for Finance and Governance, said: "This Council has maintained and improved the quality of its services during a period of prolonged financial uncertainty and significant change."That uncertainty and change are set to continue and we have to be realistic about what we can achieve in the coming years giving that in all likelihood the council will cease to exist sometime during 2020."But good management of what we have available means we are still able to approve spending on improvements to Towcester Centre for Leisure; we've created a fund to replace inefficient and expensive heating systems in households suffering fuel poverty, and we're investing further in our commercial waste service which is making a good income and in turn supports other services."The 2019/20 SNC Business Plan centres around three priorities: Protect, Green and Clean, Thriving Communities and Wellbeing, and District of Opportunity and Growth.The Business Plan is largely an update of the previous year's, but accounts for the separation of SNC from Cherwell District Council in preparation for SNC becoming part of the new council for west Northamptonshire.SNC is also responsible for collecting Council Tax on behalf of other authorities in the county and this year's bill will comprise precepts for a band D property from: Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) for £1,146.38 NCC Adult Social Care for £89.72, Northants Police Crime Commissioner for £245.04, Northants Fire and Rescue for £60.76 and an average town/parish council precept of £85.51.To read the full SNC Business Plan and Budget, visit
