Police keeping Warwickshire's roads safe during pandemic

Leamington Editorial 28th Apr, 2020   0

TRAFFIC police in Warwickshire continue to patrol during the pandemic despite the dramatic reduction in vehicles using the county’s road network.

They are keeping a check on driver behaviours and that vehicles are safe to be on the roads. This includes looking out for uninsured drivers and anyone taking risks by speeding, using a mobile phone while driving, drink driving, or not wearing a seatbelt.

Insp Jem Mountford said “We’re pleased to find a significant decrease in traffic on Warwickshire’s roads demonstrating that people are complying with the governments directions.

“However, it has been disappointing to see the number of uninsured vehicles and drivers who believe the quieter roads are an excuse to drive too fast putting themselves and others in danger.”




“Officers are conducting proactive patrols to identify these offences as we’re determined to make the roads of Warwickshire as safe as possible.”
