London 2012 star was paralysed after not wearing seatbelt

Josie Pearson, a London 2012 Paralympic champion from Hay-on-Wye, is fronting this year's campaign from all four Welsh police forces to highlight the importance of wearing a seatbelt.

She was paralysed in a crash in 2003, when she was not wearing a seatbelt.

She describes how she regrets the day she chose not to put her seatbelt on: "I wish I could go back to that day and not get in the car. Set a good example and put your belt on, it could save your life.”
