4,446 people caught not wearing a seatbelt in one week
In a week, 4,446 people were spotted not wearing a seatbelt. 75.6% of people who did not use a seatbelt were circulating on conventional roads.
Incredibly, 262 minors travelled without a seatblet or child restraint system, 62 of them in the front seat.
These figures relate to a short campaign run by the Genereal Directorate of Traffic (DGT) from 11 to 17 March. This is therefore just a snapshot of the problem.
Wearing a seatbelt in a car in Spain is a legal requirement and is not optional. So too, is the use of suitable homologated child seats.
