And Finally … Road Safety Week
Road safety events have been taking place across the County this week, in support of the Cambridgeshire Road Safety Partnership’s rural road speed campaign but also targeting all other forms of motoring safety and including educational and enforcement activities.
The week culminates in a 24-hour multi-agency operation that started at 6:00 am today, Friday 22nd November, and includes enforcement activities including speeding, the use of mobile phones, driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs, and the failure to wear a seat-belt.
Officers will also be out educating road users on tyre and bike safety as well as attending schools and colleges to provide advice on how to stay safe on the roads.
More than 200 officers, PCSOs, staff and volunteers will be taking part and supporting the initiative, including Specials, cadets, neighbourhood officers and road policing officers.
