PUBLISHED: 16:00 06 August 2018
Avon and Somerset police have launched a speed awareness campaign today (Monday), which targets people driving above the limit in areas across North Somerset.
The campaign runs until Sunday and the police force is also targeting drivers in Somerset and Bristol.
Speed enforcement officers and volunteers from surrounding Community Speedwatch groups will be placed in different areas known for people committing the offence.
Head of road safety at Avon and Somerset police, superintendent Andy Williams, said: “Speeding has a significant factor in many road traffic collisions and we are very grateful to volunteers and members of the community for playing a part in keeping the roads safe for everyone.”
People caught speeding will be sent a warning letter and advice, but further action will be taken against repeat and high-end speed offenders.
