The Commissioner met with a brand new team dedicated to reducing serious and fatal crashes on the county’s roads.
The new Vanguard Road Safety Team has been fully operational since October, with two sergeants and 10 PCs targeting motorists who commit the ‘Fatal 5’ offences – inappropriate speed, not wearing a seat belt, driving under the influence of drink or drugs, distracted driving, including looking at a mobile phone, and careless driving.
Lisa said: "Our motorways are some of the busiest in the country, and that’s why I’ve made road safety a key priority in my Police and Crime Plan.
“Distracted and dangerous driving ruins lives.
"While most people are safe motorists, there are some who selfishly risk both their own lives and the lives of others. The Vanguard team will be proactively tackling these drivers."
