Speeding remains one of the five main causes of serious crashes on Cheshire’s roads and is currently the subject of a national police campaign to make the roads safer.
Along with forces across the country, Cheshire Constabulary has been taking part in the ‘fatal five’ campaign to raise awareness of the five main causes of serious collisions.
As well as speeding, the others are careless driving, drink and drug driving, not wearing a seatbelt and using a mobile phone.
A statement on the Cheshire Constabulary website says: “People are dying on our roads as a result of motorists’ poor driving, reckless decisions and momentary lapses in concentration.
“Fatal collisions are heart-breaking – for the family, for the community, and for the responding emergency services staff who have to witness the tragedy and subsequent aftermath.
“Stopping any more deaths from occurring as a result of something unnecessary and totally avoidable is a top priority for us.”
Speed cameras are one of the devices used by authorities in a bid to cut speeding across the county.
Here is a list of all the speed cameras in place across Cheshire, according to the Cheshire Road Safety Group website.
