Watch your speed

Cheshire Police are launching a month-long campaign cracking down on speeding vehicles.

The month of action has been coordinated by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), with the warning from Cheshire’s Roads and Crime Unit (RCU) being that if you speed in the region, police will be taking robust action.

Over the next few weeks, officers will be visiting speeding hotspots on the lookout for any road users travelling at excess speed, driving dangerously and putting other road users lives at risk.

Throughout the course of the operation, officers will educate drivers caught speeding.

The minimum penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and three points added to your licence. Receiving 12 or more points within three years may disqualify you from driving.

If you’re a newly qualified driver and receive six points during the first two years after passing your test, your licence will automatically be cancelled. To get it back you’ll need to apply and pay for a new provisional licence and pass both theory and practical tests again.
