WATCH: Police carry out spot checks

Monday 07 September 2020


Six people have been stopped driving at speeds between 50mph and 68mph in the last week.

Police officers and vehicle examiners have been out and about in various locations across the island in recent days checking that vehicles are in road legal condition.

They have also been conducting random speed checks, making sure no one was using a mobile phone while driving and that everyone in the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.

Roads Policing Inspector Tom Marshall said having a regular and visible presence helps to reduce accidents and injuries on our roads.

"Road safety is of paramount importance each and every day. We will continue to proactively deploy across the island at times and locations of our choosing to ensure vehicles are safe to be on our roads."

Inspector Marshall continued: "Today all road users were observing the speed limit, but in the last week we have stopped six people at speeds of between 50mph and 68mph, which has no place on our island roads.”
