Devon and Cornwall police are working with the European Traffic Police Network in order to reduce excessive speed on the roads of these areas. TISPOL Operation Speed will work with police forces to gather intelligence with the aim of reducing speed on the roads of the region and to prevent death and injury from road traffic accidents. The campaign will run from 18th August to 24th August and will work to share information with its members regarding penalties issued on the area’s roads and any collisions which have occurred. Devon and Cornwall police will also be monitoring the roads to provide advice and prevent criminal behaviour among road users. Speed checks will be conducted by Safer Roads Support Unit at sites where there have been a high number of speeding drivers and collisions.
Speeding is one of the main causes of collisions involving fatalities and serious injuries and the campaign is designed to educate people on traffic law as well as enforce action should there be speeding drivers on the roads.
Speeding is just one of the ways a road accident can occur, and collisions involving excessive speeding can lead to a fatality. This is easily avoided by being aware of your surroundings and keeping the speed limit in mind at all times. This also includes on country roads, where many drivers can exceed the limit because there are a lower number of cars on the road. Should there be an accident which causes you an injury, you may be able to make a claim for compensation if the injury was caused by another road user. A compensation claims company like Accident Advice Helpline can represent you.
