Two week speed enforcement results

Alert message sent 19/06/2020 08:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


Nearly 3,500 motorists were caught speeding during a two-week campaign in
Derbyshire.
Speeding is one of the leading causes of serious and fatal collisions in the UK and
during the recent lockdown period we have seen increased speeds across the
country.
From 25 May until 7 June officers focused their attention on roads and areas where
speeding was known to be an issue or where there was a history of serious
collisions.
Among the 3,470 speeding offences during the two weeks of enforcement the most
serious speeds seen were:
• 67mph in a 40mph in Eckington
• 59mph in a 30mph in Clowne
• 80mph in a 50mph on A623 Tideswell
• 78mph in a 50mph on A623 Watergrove
Chief Inspector James Thompson, who leads the roads policing team, said: “On a
far too regular basis officers from our force have to deliver the news no family wants
to hear – that their friend or member of their family is never coming home.
“Those who decide to break the speed limit are putting not only themselves in
danger but also every other road user.
