Nearly 2000 motorists caught speeding

Share Canberra's trusted news:

THROUGHOUT July ACT police will be targeting speed after almost 2000 motorists have already been caught going over the speed limit this year. 

ACT Policing says they’ve already issued more than 1900 traffic infringement notices, which include 34 for exceeding the speed limit by over 45 kilometres per hour.

Officer in charge of traffic operations, station sergeant David Wills says there is simply no excuse for speeding.

“When you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, you are responsible for your own safety and the safety of others, including vulnerable road users,” he says.

“The faster you go the harder you hit, and the more likely a collision resulting in serious injury or death will occur. Don’t let one action have life altering consequences for yourself or others.”
