Former Test cricketers Shane Warne, Michael Slater and Kevin Pietersen must pay up after failing to buckle up during a recent visit to Hobart.

Tasmanian police on Tuesday confirmed they had issued an infringement notice to the trio - a 47-year-old from Victoria, a 46-year-old from NSW and a 36-year-old from the UK - which will cost them $300 each.

"The infringements for failing to wear a seatbelt were issued after police reviewed a video posted on one of the men's Facebook page," police said in a brief statement.

Warne posted the four-minute clip after day three of Australia's Test match against South Africa at Bellerive Oval, at which the men were working as television commentators.

Halfway through the video, they realise their mistake and put on their seatbelts.

Former Australian skipper Mark Taylor was driving the van and former wicketkeeper Ian Healy was the front-seat passenger and both were wearing seatbelts.

"Tasmania Police remind motorists that seatbelts save lives and urge drivers to insist their passengers buckle up too," police said.

As driver of a vehicle containing unrestrained passengers, Taylor could have also been prosecuted, but police have not taken action against the 52-year-old.
