    Northumberland police support campaign against speeding motorists

    By David Brown on September 19, 2014

    The police of Northumberland are continuing to campaign for road safety in the area after showing their support for a Europe-wide scheme to stop speeding motorists. The campaign ran for a week in August and was co-ordinated by the European Traffic Police Network in order to reduce the amount of fatalities and serious accidents on the continent’s roads. Action was taken by police forces across the country to tackle speeding motorists and to issue enforcement action where necessary. Northumberland police have their own campaign, Operation Dragoon, which played a role in the Europe-wide scheme.

    In the Northumberland area alone, around 2,000 drivers were caught violating speed limits with enforcement action taken to prevent this in the future. Police made use of various methods including camera traps and strategically placed police motorcyclists in order to catch those who had been driving above the recommended speed limit. Chief Inspector John Heckels has stated that it is much harder to stop when driving above the speed limit and speeding can have devastating effects should there be a road traffic accident. Northumberland police continue to take action against speeding motorists.

    Speed kills

    Speeding motorists put lives in danger by recklessly violating speed limits and by disregarding other road users. Vulnerable road users such as pedestrians or cyclists are at the most risk of injury should there be an accident involving a speeding driver and fatalities can result in the event of a collision. Police often advise drivers that they should drive below the speed limit rather than seeing it as a target and should consider road conditions before driving too fast. Some road users exercise vigilance and practise road safety, but others are not so considerate. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and someone else was at fault, you can call Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.
