42 people were reported for speeding on Jersey's roads during National Road Safety week.

Officers were doing extra checks of known hotspots.

21 drivers were issued Words of Advice for having defective vehicles.

Inspector Callum O’Connor, the lead for Roads Policing said:

“If these campaigns raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of speeding and help to slow one person down, then they have been successful. Knowing your stopping distances and the impact driving a few miles over the speed limit could make to a pedestrian involved in a collision, does make a difference if it is in people’s minds when they get behind the wheel."

He says that although efforts last week were focused on speeding, roads policing is part of everyday policing to keep the roads safe.

" Anti-social and bad driving can be reported online on our website www.jersey.police.uk or by calling 01534 612612."
