    Speeding clampdown takes place on Portadown roads

    By David Brown on November 11, 2014

    Speeding is a key element in many otherwise-preventable road crashes. To this end, police road safety teams have been out and about in Portadown, stopping drivers who have been caught speeding.

    In one week alone, between the 6th and 12th October, 70 drivers were stopped and fined via fixed penalty notices. The offences they were stopped for included speeding, but also included driving without a seat belt and using a mobile at the wheel.

    A number of other people were also stopped during the speeding clampdown in that particular week. Three people ended up being arrested, one of whom had been speeding at 106mph. That driver was charged for the offence. In some cases people were given warnings and advice on how to improve their driving behaviour in the future.

    The good news was that the majority of people seen driving on the roads during the speeding clampdown were driving safely and responsibly. It is hoped more will do the same thanks to the efforts of the police to stop those who are driving dangerously or are disregarding the Highway Code. For the most part the general public has been extremely supportive of the campaign.

    How can a speeding clampdown lead to safer roads?

    Speeding can be a major factor in accidents. For example a crash that could otherwise be fairly minor could turn out to be anything but if the car (or cars) involved is travelling at a higher speed. This gives the driver far less time to react to their surroundings and the impact will be far more severe too. By reducing our speed and staying within the speed limit we can all remain a lot safer on the roads today and hopefully reduce the injury and death toll too.

    Do you need professional no-obligation advice after an accident?

    It can be difficult to know where you stand legally after a road accident. However if you believe you have proof of negligence on the part of another driver, you may have cause to launch a no win, no fee* claim for compensation. AAH can help determine the facts so you don’t have to. Call us today or take the 30-second online test to see whether you might be able to claim compensation. Our enquiry line is open 24/7 so there is always someone here to take your call and your details.
