Four warned over speeding in Tibberton during police operation

FOUR drivers were warned about speeding after a police operation in Tibberton yesterday.

Officers from Worcestershire Operational Policing Unit were supported the Tibberton Community Speed Watch Group who set up their monitoring equipment on Church Lane.

It was part of the wider operation in conjunction with the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) which began earlier this month to coincide with the number of vehicles on the roads increasing after the Government relaxed the lockdown laws.

Whereas there were restrictions on daily exercise being taken in local areas, people are now permitted to travel.

Chief Constable Anthony Bangham, Roads Policing Lead for NPCC, said earlier this week: “Put this together with better weather, lighter evenings, motorcyclists itching to ride out across our country roads and you have the concerning combination of factors for a significant increase in people being killed or seriously injured.

“I am determined for this not to be the case.

“With the gradual move out of lockdown and with traffic volumes starting to increase, this national operation is an important way of highlighting the dangers of speeding, particularly when so many people have not been out on the roads for quite some time.”

Figures show on average 17 people are killed and 126 are seriously injured every month in the UK, where speeding is believed to have been a significant factor.
