Norfolk police will spend the next two weeks focusing on speeding drivers.

Speeding is included as one of the 'fatal four' offences which makes you more likely to be killed or injured in a collision.

It's all part of a two week national enforcement campaign to try and reduce the number of casualties on the roads.

Officers will be speaking with drivers during the campaign.

The aim is to highlight the dangers of speeding and informing drivers of the risks and consequences that driving above the limit can have. 

Inappropriate speed contributes to around 10% of all injury collisions reported to the police, 13% resulting in a serious injury, and 24% of collisions which result in a death.
 
The campaign, co-ordinated by the National Police Chiefs' Council, launches today (Monday 20 January) and will run until Sunday 2 February, and will see an increased amount of checks and enforcement across both counties.

Chief Inspector Kris Barnard, head of the Roads and Armed Policing Team said: 

"The main aim of this campaign is to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads. Campaigns like this help us to enforce the laws and target those drivers who pose a risk not just to themselves but to other road users. 
 
"Speed limits are implemented for a reason and drivers must ensure that they obey these limits in order to prevent any road related incidents."

Motorists caught speeding will be issued with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR) and face a fine, points on their licence or even court action. Some drivers can opt to take part in a speed awareness course.
