Europe-wide clampdown on speeding drivers

Police across Europe have revealed they stopped and dealt with over 600,000 speeding drivers in a single week.

The operation, which was organised by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL) in a bid to tackle the problem of speeding and dangerous driving, took place between 14 and 20 April earlier this year.

A total of 605,523 drivers were clocked breaking the speed limit – either by police officers on the road or cameras.

Speed kills

Speeding is one of the main causes of road traffic accidents.

A collision at speed can have devastating consequences, causing serious injury or death in the most extreme cases.

Speed limits are therefore, in place to reduce casualties and help keep the roads safe for everyone, but the findings from the operation show that hundreds of thousands of motorists around Europe regularly flout the system.

In light of the figures, TISPOL President Koen Ricour is urging motorists to demonstrate care and consideration for themselves, their families and others by driving safely within the speed limit at all times.

He claims drivers will be greatly reducing the risk of killing or seriously injuring themselves or other road users by sticking to the speed limit.

Claiming for a road traffic accident

If you’ve been injured in an accident on the road in the last three years that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

Accident Advice Helpline can tell you whether or not you have a valid case, while it can also guide you through the process of making a claim.

How much money you get depends on several factors, including the type of injury sustained and how serious it is, but you can go online and take a 30-second test to give yourself a rough estimate of what the figure might be.

You can even claim for untraced driver compensation if you were the victim of an accident like a hit and run.
