12:00pm Monday 14th April 2014 in News
POLICE officers from Hampshire’s roads unit will join in a Europe-wide crackdown on speeding this week.
Forces across the continent will be participating in the campaign to highlight the devastating effect excessive or inappropriate speed can have on the safety of road users.
Europe-wide it is estimated that speeding contributes to as many as one third of all fatal crashes.
During 2013 in Hampshire 27 per cent of people killed in road crashes died in accidents where exceeding the speed limit or travelling too fast for the conditions were recorded as contributory factors.
Sergeant Rob Heard said it is a ‘good reminder’ to people to keep to the speed limits.
