Drivers can help keep roads safe

More than 70 motorists were caught offending by Cumbria police during a recent road safety campaign.
Have your say
Roy undoubtedly the technology approach is the most effective however peer pressure is proven to change behavior and average sghort term memory is 7+/-2 enabling the majority to remember a reg and post later.
Paul M, Cumbria was on the site under 'All Locations' however is now on the homepage following your request.
@ regermeBrilliant website, but could you tell me how useful it is when Cumbria isn't even available to search against ?I think the headline here tells the story. Even the author intimates that road safety is someone else's problem. Pity it doesn't reflect the actual story.Road safety is the responsibility of every single individual who uses the highway - simple. It's not the police, or the government, or the councils - ITS YOU!Once people start to take responsibility for their own actions, things will start to get better.Everyone thinks they are a good driver - but very few are. Those that are good drivers are the first to admit that they still have things to learn.
Regerme thats great. However my Driving standard road test was to read a vehicles number plate within a set distance which I found was outside my scope when confronted with a driver going a massive well beyond the NSL of a city centre road. Even by time I reached and drew my mobile he had gone, oblivious to anyone trying to cross a traffic free road seconds earlier. Some localities do need CCTV (or Police?) for traffic surveillance in Carlisle. In seeing European countries that separate functions of Policing into traffic and crime many, many decades ago. It is time we had a division centred on effective policing of traffic offences.
