Police across Europe to run 24-hour ‘speed enforcement’ marathon
Police officers across Europe are to run a 24-hour ‘Speed Marathon’ to clamp down on speeding drivers.
Taking place from 0600 on Wednesday 19 April to 0600 on Thursday 20 April, the initiative forms part of TISPOL’s week-long speed enforcement operation.
The 2016 Speed Marathon saw 2.5 million vehicles checked of which 5% were speeding.
TISPOL president Paolo Cestra commented: “Illegal and/or inappropriate speed is the single biggest factor fatal road collisions. That’s why police officers take action against drivers who fail to comply with speed limits. The 24-hour speed marathon is one component in our strategy for reducing casualties, and making Europe’s roads safer.”
