    Europe-wide speeding crackdown is launched to target dangerous drivers

    By David Brown on September 9, 2014

    A new campaign organised by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL) is targeting speeding drivers and Hampshire police have warned that the speeding crackdown will result in enforcement action on those who break the law. Police are going undercover to catch those who go over the speed limit and will be using unmarked vehicles and motorbikes for the first time to make Europe’s roads safer. Extra patrols will be made as part of the operation and mobile speed cameras will also be used to enforce action on those who drive over the limit. Figures have shown that 84,000 drivers were caught speeding in Hampshire last year and 27% of those who were killed in collisions on the country’s roads were killed because someone was driving at excessive speeds. Road Safety Sergeant Rob Heard has stated that the consequences of speeding can be devastating as demonstrated by the figures and that the speed limit is not a target to be aimed at. In fact, many drivers should drive below this limit according to the conditions they are driving in.

    Speeding is a top cause for road accidents

    Simple road safety and keeping to the speed limit can be the difference between a safe drive home from work and an accident or collision on the road. Many road safety campaigns focusing on a speeding crackdown offer education and advice to drivers who may be unsure of the speed limits on certain types of road. It is often recommended that speed limits are merely guidelines and drivers should be below the speed limit in order to keep safe. Although many drivers take road safety seriously, many do not uphold the rules. If you are involved in an accident and another driver was at fault, you may be able to win a cash payout if you have been injured.
