Speeding Suffolk drivers targeted in month long campaign
More than 1,100 drivers were caught speeding during a week-long enforcement campaign in Suffolk last month.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit and vans from the Suffolk Safety Camera Partnership were deployed across the county to carry out checks as part of a week-long European-wide campaign.
During the campaign, 1,168 drivers were caught speeding, 998 of which were caught by fixed or mobile camera sites, while 170 were caught by officers on patrol.
Chief Inspector Kris Barnard said: “Speeding is recognised as one of the ‘fatal four’ offences which leads to people being killed or serious injured in a collision along with drink driving, using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt. We target these and other types of offences all year round but these campaigns allow to raise awareness among drivers and explain the consequences of speeding.”
