Police are ramping up efforts to catch people speeding as part of Road Safety Week.
The annual campaign, which is this year titled 'No Need to Speed', has been launched once again in order to drive home the importance of safe behaviour on island roads.
“Road safety is of paramount importance and this dedicated week is an excellent opportunity for us to highlight road safety issues, and to engage with members of the community of all ages," said Inspector Tom Marshall from the Roads Policing Unit.
“In preparation for this week, we have been visiting schools to give some lessons on how to be safe on the roads and we have also liaised with Target who have provided some tyre safety leaflets.
“Over the course of this week our vehicle examiners will be going out with uniformed staff to conduct roadside checks on various vehicles, and our officers will, as always, be on the lookout for road safety offences, such as the use of a mobile phone while driving, travelling without a seat belt, or exceeding the speed limit.”
The campaign runs until the end of the week with the aim of "inspiring schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety" and to "promote life-saving messages during the week and beyond."
