MORE than 1,600 speeding offences were identified as part of a week-long Sussex speed awareness campaign.

The campaign, which was run by the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership in conjunction with the Tispol Speed Enforcement week, discovered 1,691 speeding offences across the county.

Inspector James Biggs of Sussex Police Roads Policing Unit said: ‘Roads policing officers and the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership carry out constant speed checks on the roads of Sussex and it is disappointing to see that so many people continue to speed.

‘Speed continues to be a common factor in serious injury collisions.’
