Clampdown on speeding drivers launched in Lancashire

Alert message sent 20/05/2020 15:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary

A major operation has been launched in Lancashire to target speeding on the county’s road network.

The majority of people within the county are staying at home and, if they need to go out, are continuing to stick to the speed limits – but we have unfortunately seen an increase in vehicles travelling above the speed limit in the last few weeks.

Operation Manta Ray will focus on high profile enforcement and education to road users and will target the main causes of road accidents - speed, driver impairment through drink or drugs, use of mobile phones, dangerous and careless driving.

Local neighbourhood teams have been listening to community concerns around key hotspot areas across the county, where there has been an increase in speeding and dangerous and careless driving, putting themselves and others at risk.

With the bank holiday approaching and the likelihood of nice weather, Lancashire Constabulary will be stepping up patrols in these areas in a bid to crackdown on those individuals flouting the rules of the road while out for a drive, and help to protect vital emergency services at this time.

You can report any concerns or issues by calling 101. Always dial 999 in an emergency.
