Police and volunteers to focus on speed during Road Safety Week

Speeding motorists will be the focus of police and volunteers across Devon & Cornwall next week as part of national Road Safety Week.

Roads Policing teams, Speed Detection Officers and Special Constables will be out in force across the two counties from November 19–25 in an effort to slow drivers down.

They will also be joined by hundreds of volunteers from Community Speedwatch teams in neighbourhoods all over the South West.

Speed is the theme of this year’s Road Safety Week, which is organised by national charity Brake.

Across the UK, police figures show that travelling too fast or exceeding the speed limit was a contributory factor in 25% of deaths, where an officer attended the scene of a collision.
