This week sees the start of Global Road Safety Week (17 – 23 May), an initiative focusing on neighbourhood speeding and keeping our community safe. See more about the Global campaign HERE
Throughout the campaign States and Honorary Police will be out and about conducting speed checks with the focus on some of the 20mph Parish roads. This campaign forms part of the enforcement activities conducted throughout the year by police and aims to reduce the volume of anti-social driving that we see on our roads.
Officers will be targeting areas based on intelligence received by the public reporting anti-social driving and speeding within their Parishes with the aim of disrupting this behaviour. Those caught driving in excess of the speed limits can expect to be prosecuted.
Inspector Callum O’Connor, the lead for Roads Policing said: “Our message is clear, slow down. These small roads are at the heart of community, we all use them and we all deserve to be safe whilst doing so. Driving faster makes stopping quickly less likely and the greater the impact speed the great chance of causing serious injury or death to those involved in a collision. Some of the speeds we see are just not acceptable for an island of this size.”
Anti-social and bad driving can be reported online on our website www.jersey.police.uk or by calling 612612.
