Police cracking down on speed offenders in Christchurch
POLICE speed camera teams will be out in force in Christchurch today (Tuesday) and for the rest of the week.
The operation, including most parts of Bournemouth, is part of a crackdown across Dorset to combat dangerous and inconsiderate drivers.
It is part of Dorset Police’s ‘No Excuse’ team campaign which aims to use a combination of enforcement and education to tackle the ‘fatal five’ dangers in driving.
These are drink and drug driving, excessive and inappropriate speeds, not wearing a seat belt, driver distractions such as handheld mobile phones and careless driving.
Police say the teams will be covering Christchurch, including Hurn, Purewell, Somerford, Mudeford, Highcliffe and Walkford.
They will also be in parts of Bournemouth on Wednesday, including Boscombe, Littledown, Pokesdown and Southbourne.
Police say the teams will be operating round the clock, seven days a week.
“They could be anywhere at any time,” said a force spokesman.
They will be returning to the Christchurch area on Sunday.
