Throughout the week PCs and PCSOs from your Lewes Neighbourhood Policing Teams have been out across various locations on the district, from Newhaven and Peacehaven, to Seaford and Ringmer, conducting vehicle safety checks, and conducting speed checks in areas which have seen a high rate of reporting.
During the week, officers have issued a number of traffic related offence reports, and recorded a number of vehicles exceeding the limit in the locations monitored, drivers who were stopped will either be reported to our Operation Crackdown department, or will have been given words of advice at the roadside.
If speeding is an issue in your area please report it to the police, all reports help to direct patrols where they are needed the most and can take appropriate action to respond to your concerns. You can report it to police online, or to the Operation Crackdown Team by searching ‘Operation Crackdown Sussex’ online.
The police will continue to conduct these checks, along with partners and volunteers from Community Speedwatch groups, to enforce and to educate drivers, and help to reduce the numbers of those killed or seriously injured across the Lewes District.
