Cambridgeshire Police to target speeding motorists in week-long crackdown

SPEEDING motorists will be targeted across Cambridgeshire this week as part of a week-long crackdown.

Cambridgeshire Police begin the initiative this morning, as part of a European-wide campaign organised by Traffic Information System Police (TISPOL), to target those who speed on the county’s roads.

Chris Skepper, roads policing inspector, said: “Excessive and inappropriate speeding is one of the main contributions to avoidable collisions that result in death or serious injury.

“The purpose of this campaign is to promote safe driving by encouraging everyone to stick to the speed limits and thus reducing the number of casualties on the county’s roads.

“Those who break the speed limit or speed inappropriately when driving are not only risking their own lives but also the lives of others. Speeding is an issue that concerns many residents in the county and one that we take extremely seriously.

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

Anyone caught speeding will be issued with a fixed-penalty notice, resulting in a �60 fine and three points on their licence.
