SPEED CAMERA LOCATIONS REVEALED AS CRACKDOWN BEGINS

policespeedPolice have revealed the locations of mobile speed cameras across the Isle of Wight as part of a crackdown on speeding motorists.

Officers from the Isle of Wight Roads Policing Unit based at Shanklin Police Station are this week targeting speeding drivers, especially in accident blackspots.

Sergeant Rob Heard of Hampshire Roads Policing Unit said:

“Excessive or inappropriate speed has a singularly devastating impact on the safety of road users, increasing both the risk of a crash and the severity of the consequences.

‘Speeding is the most prevalent dangerous driving activity and forms as one of the main factors involved in fatal road collisions. People need to realise it’s a speed limit and not a target so it may be more appropriate to travel at a lower speed depending on the road conditions for their own safety.

‘Hampshire Constabulary is committed to increasing road safety and will continue to target those who fail to abide by the speed limits. Our aim is simply, to improve the knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of any drivers who speed, thereby reducing the likelihood of the driver being involved in a future speeding incident and make our roads safer”.

A list of locations that will be regularly targeted on the Isle of Wight have been published as part of the overall effort to encourage drivers to keep to the speed limit.
