"Cleveland and Durham police will be patrolling the roads from Monday to raise awareness of the importance of wearing a seatbelt.
"As part of their daily patrols officers will particularly focus on drivers and their passengers who are not wearing seatbelts.
"The aim of the campaign is to educate people on the dangers of ignoring the law, and where police think it appropriate, they will take enforcement action.
"Failure to wear a seatbelt carries a fine of £100 - and if prosecuted, the maximum fine could be anything up to £500."
