Police campaign on speeding

Motorists are being asked to consider their speed and help save lives in a week-long Police Scotland campaign.

Officers from Police Scotland will be tackling speeding drivers during the week. As well as enforcing speed limits, officers will take every opportunity to interact with drivers and other road users, particularly those from vulnerable groups (such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists) to educate them about the inherent dangers associated with speeding and driving at inappropriate speed.

Head of Road Policing Chief Superintendent Andy Edmonston, said: “Police Scotland is committed to making our country’s roads safer. Communities across the country continually tell us that road safety and speeding are issues of concern for them, that is why reducing road casualties and fatalities remains one of our top policing priorities.

The campaign runs from 0700hrs today, Monday May 2, to 0700hrs on Monday May 9.
