Kent police announce week-long campaign to target speeding drivers
Monday 16th April 2018
KENT Police will be on the lookout for speeding drivers this week in a bid to make roads safer and raise awareness of the dangers of driving too fast.
Officers have joined with the Kent and Medway Safety Camera Partnership and Kent County Council in an effort to reduce the number of motorists breaking the speed limits.
The action, scheduled to run between Monday April 16 and Sunday April 22, forms part of a Europe-wide road safety campaign by the European Traffic Police Network.
Speeding is one of the biggest contributing factors to fatal and serious injury collisions.
Ben Brennan, Sergeant of the Roads Policing Unit, said: “Our main aim is to educate motorists and encourage them to drive safely.”
“It can be easy to forget why there are limits in place and for motorists to slip into bad habits.”
“I would ask motorists to take this opportunity to think about how they drive, consider the conditions around them and the impact that their behaviour can have on other road users.”
