FROM MIDNIGHT TODAY, drivers will face penalty points if they fail to ensure passengers are wearing seatbelts while in their vehicles.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Transport Minister Leo Varadkar revealed that a quarter of all drivers who died in collisions this year weren’t wearing a seatbelt. Thirty per cent of passengers who died on the roads were not wearing seatbelts.

As authorities crack down on the issue, we’re asking: Do you wear a seatbelt while in a vehicle?
