Wirral motorists urged to kill their speed


WIRRAL motorists are being urged to make reducing their speed their New Year resolution.

The police warning follows the News that 483 people were seriously injured and 29 died on the roads of Merseyside last year, with excess speed factoring in many of the collisions.

While this was a 50 per cent reduction in the number of people who lost their lives compared to the 58 fatalities in 2009, the Roads Policing Department is continuing to work hard to further reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads of Merseyside.


Throughout this month, police will be out on the roads carrying out enforcement as well as educating motorists caught breaking the speeding laws.

Chief Inspector John Hogan, head of the Roads Policing Department, said: "We want to start the new year with the message that speed limits are there to save lives and we will be carrying out enforcement and education to try to further reduce the number of people hurt on our roads by drivers prepared to break these laws.

"We are determined to make a difference to the safety of road users and throughout the year we will be focusing on a different theme for our monthly campaigns.

"But we can't do it on our own. We need drivers to pay the roads the care and attention they deserve and passengers to behave accordingly and not distract drivers.

"Together we can make a difference to the safety of road users in Merseyside and ensure that 2011 is a memorable year for all the right reasons and not because of any tragedies."

In the last 10 years, Merseyside Police has reduced the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads from 833 at the end of 2000 to 512 at the end of 2010 - a fall of almost 40 per cent.

Sorry Jase, I'm not sure a big in your face ghost hunters signature looks right when your reporting on deaths, i know you don't mean any harm, just doesn't look right to me, don't know what anyone else thinks.

I take it in the context that he is advocating the Paranormal Investigation forum. But then...i'm active in that so maybe i'm biased?! Hmmm. Interesting point raised, Bert-especially as eventually all P.I hope to have Avatars/ sigs!

Nothing wrong with the signature Rude, just doesn't seem appropriate on posts involving the loss of life, current News that is.

Whether its groovy or not is another debate, it certainly stands out and in some circumstances it may come across lacking sensitivity, I know as we all do, Jase is not like that when it comes to reporting News, I hope a way can be found if possible, not to have it attached to posts involving loss of life.

You can choose not to have your signature included when making a post, just untick the box found beneath the text box entitled "Add signature to this post". You can even do it on quick replies, again by unticking the box "Add Signature" which can be found to the left of the quick reply box.

Having said that, I can't really see much of a problem with it either way.
