Operation Spotlight to highlight action against ‘Fatal Four’

Posted on behalf of West Mercia Police


Last year, across our police force area, 56 people lost their lives in collisions and 468 people suffered serious injuries.


Common factors in these collisions (often called the Fatal Four) include:

·  Speeding or inappropriate speed

·  Distractions, such as mobile phone

·  Driving under the influence of drink or drugs

·  Not wearing a seatbelt.

Keeping those who use our roads safe is a year-round priority for us and enforcing the law around these issues takes place locally across Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire 24/7.

Throughout this month we will be highlighting the work we do across our area to help make our roads safer.
