Sussex Police catch nearly 900 drivers speeding

Nearly 900 drivers have been caught speeding in Sussex in the first two days of a week-long safety campaign.

Road policing officers with the Sussex force started carrying out checks across the county on Monday.

Sgt Paul Wood, from the roads policing unit, said 894 drivers were caught speeding on Monday and Tuesday.

He said routine speed checks last weekend also led to three motorcyclists and one car driver being stopped for doing over 100mph.

All were reported for summons to court.

"Driving too fast for the road or the weather conditions is extremely dangerous and is a major contributory factor towards collisions," Sgt Wood said.

"Part of this campaign is about educating people regarding the consequences of their actions.

"Motorists who speed pose a real risk to themselves, their passengers and other road users."
