Police target speeding motorists at scene of Mansfield fatal crash

More than a dozen motorists were caught speeding in a police operation at the scene of a fatal collision.

Officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s Mansfield Operation Reacher team carried out speed checks, yesterday evening, March 17.

A team spokesman said: “The team have been conducting Fatal Four speed checks on Chesterfield Road North, Pleasley, at the location where a father and son tragically died following a crash.”

Speeding motorists were targeted by police officers.

The team said: “In light of this tragic incident, it appears many motorists still speed on this road as a total of 13 motorists were stopped and tickets issued after being found driving in excess of the 30mph speed limit, ranging from 36-48mph.

“The team would like to remind motorists speed really does kill and therefore please respect the speed limits on the roads.”

The four main causes of people being killed or seriously injured on our roads are known by the emergency services as the Fatal Four: inappropriate speed; using a mobile phone; not wearing a seatbelt; and drink/drug driving.
