ALMOST 60 per cent of the drivers caught not wearing a seatbelt in West Yorkshire last year were stopped in Bradford.
West Yorkshire Police revealed the figures as it gave its support to the Europe-wide campaign on seatbelt enforcement, which starts today and runs throughout this week.
In 2016, West Yorkshire Police issued 4,835 tickets to drivers they spotted not wearing a seatbelt.
Of those, 2,823 were caught in Bradford district.
Of the drivers caught in the district, 83 per cent (2,349) were stopped by officers involved in Operation Steerside, the police crackdown on dangerous driving in Bradford.




The week-long seatbelt enforcement campaign, led by the European Traffic Police Network, is being used by West Yorkshire Police to raise awareness about the dangers of not wearing a seatbelt.
Sergeant James Farrar, of the Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support Team East, said; “It seems like the most natural thing to most people, when you get in a vehicle to put on your seat belt but there are still people who don’t.
"We see people every day driving around West Yorkshire not wearing a seat belt.
