Speeding warning

THE Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership is warning drivers to slow down after it was revealed many regularly break the speed limit.

A survey revealed 49 per cent broke the speed limit on the motorway, with others going too fast on dual and single carriageways.

Partnership chairman Mike Ashworth said: “Speeding is an easy trap to fall into. Never forget that the speed limit is a maximum not a target - sometimes conditions will mean it’s not safe to travel that fast.”
