Speeding is an offence and officers will always seek to deal with it appropriately

26 Feb 2016

Officers will always seek to deal with extreme speed appropriately to prevent harm and change driver behaviour. 

National Police Chiefs’ Council Lead for Roads Policing, Chief Constable Suzette Davenport said:

“Speed is a significant factor in fatal road accidents and extreme speed causes an even greater risk to road users. Speeding is an offence and officers will always seek to deal with it appropriately to prevent harm and change driver behaviour.

“It is the role of the police and partners to prevent excess speed through a range of enforcement and educational methods; we cannot control the market. Manufacturers are responsible for the design and marketing of high performance cars.

“Drivers are urged to drive responsibly and resist driving at extreme speeds; the impact of dangerous driving can be devastating.”
