Almost 150 drivers fined during week-long crackdown on speeding in Cambridgeshire

ALMOST 150 drivers were fined for speeding during a week-long crackdown across Cambridgeshire in April.

Police issued 143 fixed penalty notices during the campaign which ran from April 18-24 as part of a Europe-wide initiative organised by Traffic Information System Police (TISPOL).

Chris Skepper, roads policing inspector, said: “The purpose of the campaign was to educate drivers about the risks they cause to themselves and others by driving too fast.

“Speeding is the biggest cause of avoidable collisions which often result in serious or fatal injuries. It is still shocking to see so many drivers gambling with their lives for the sake of a few extra minutes on the road.

“Speeding is an issue that concerns many residents in the county and one that we take extremely seriously.

“This campaign is part of ongoing work to make the roads of Cambridgeshire a safer place for everyone who uses them.”
