THOSE who speed will be the target of a month-long THINK! campaign which starts tomorrow (May 1).

Throughout May the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit will be out in force looking for motorists breaking the law.

Insp Mark Rogers said: “Those who speed put not only their own lives at risk but also the lives of others.

“The faster you drive the less time you have to react. Speed remains one of the biggest factors in fatal collisions.

“Throughout May we will carry out targeted patrols to enforce speed limits.

“I would urge anyone who drives to help us protect road users by reducing your speed and driving to the conditions of the roads.”

Motorists are advised to: 

· make sure you leave plenty of time for your journey, taking into account traffic 

· watch out for changes in the speed limit 

· drive to suit the conditions and the layout of the road 

· don’t let peer pressure encourage you to break the law
