Police tackle speeding motorists in Hertfordshire
MOTORISTS are being reminded by police to watch their speed this week.
Hertfordshire Constabulary is taking part in a national speed awareness week, which began yesterday (Monday) and runs until Sunday.
Neighbourhood policing teams will be carrying out pro-active operations across the county to crack down on speeding traffic.
Sgt Andrew Nayler said: “It’s simple – the faster you are travelling, the more likely you or other road users are to being seriously injured or killed in a collision.
“It’s always worth taking a couple of minutes longer on your journey than speeding and receiving a fine, points on your licence or worse.”

He said: “We tackle speeding throughout the year, and it’s an issue that comes top of the list of policing priorities for many residents.
“However, campaigns like this give us a great opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and remind motorists that both road policing officers and neighbourhood teams will be on the lookout for anyone putting themselves and other road users at risk.”
