Speeding crackdown on A92 in Fife

Police have launched a speeding crackdown on a Fife road where five people have been killed in crashes over the past three years.

Fife Constabulary said 39 people were also seriously injured on the A92 during that period.

The A92 is Fife's main arterial route, passing through Cowdenbeath and Glenrothes on to the Tay Road Bridge.

The force is carrying out a "day of enforcement", targeting those who break the speed limit or drive dangerously.

Inspector Brenda Sinclair, deputy head of road policing, said: "Over the past three years five people have been killed and 39 people seriously injured in collisions on the A92 in Fife.

"We are determined to continue to reduce the number of road accidents casualties on all our roads, however the A92 is of particular interest to us as it is one of the county's busiest roads."

The force said that the summer period was always busy, with more traffic on the roads, increasing the risk of collisions.

It warned that it would "rigorously" enforce the law in a "fair and robust" manner.
