    Crackdown on road safety underway in Northern Ireland

    By David Brown on November 18, 2014

    The Police Service of Northern Ireland (otherwise known as PSNI) has started a crackdown on road safety in the area. The operation was launched on 6th November in the Cookstown and Dungannon region. As a result no fewer than 49 motorists were given fixed penalties for driving offences on the first day alone.

    The PSNI said the warnings they had given regarding driving below the speed limit had been ignored by some drivers. Furthermore some drivers had also continued to use their mobile phones while driving, which puts other road users at risk of being hurt in accidents that could easily have been avoided.

    Inspector Swann, who was involved with the road safety operation, said the 49 motorists were caught and given penalties for a variety of offences. These included mobile phone use, driving without due care and attention and having no insurance.

    The weather on the first day was wet and the Inspector also said he was disappointed some drivers did not take more care in the conditions. The operation was clearly a success with regard to the number of drivers caught and warned or fined for their behaviour. Hopefully the visibility of the PSNI will also have an effect on reducing accidents.

    How can initiatives like this make a difference?

    The PSNI has stated that many drivers are still driving in such a way as to put their lives and the lives of others in danger. It is hoped that road safety operations like this one will lead to better driving skills among those who may otherwise break the law or drive dangerously.

    Police have given warnings, fines and advice to drivers who were seen to be driving dangerously that day. Hopefully some if not all of them will think twice in future when they get behind the wheel.
