COMMENT: POLICE USE UNMARKED LORRY TO CATCH OVER 4,000 DANGEROUS DRIVERS
UK police announced today that they are using an unmarked lorry to patrol Britain’s motorways and catch drivers committing offences behind the wheel. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com comments:
“Dangerous driving is a serious problem on UK roads, but it’s sometimes difficult for the police to catch offenders in the act. With our research showing that four in five (79%) drivers admit to breaking the speed limit, we hope that police efforts such as the undercover police lorry, will discourage dangerous behaviour on our roads.
“Ultimately, the sort of behaviour captured by police can cause accidents, jeopardising the safety of other drivers. And, as a result, convictions and claiming for vehicle damage can lead to expensive repair costs and car insurance premiums, so it’s in all motorists’ interests to drive safely.”
