Extra police on roads to crackdown on NI motoring offences

By Gary Adair

There will be a stronger police presence on Northern Ireland roads over the next few months, as the PSNI attempts to crackdown on the motoring offences that are causing so many serious road accidents.

There have been 43 deaths as a result of road traffic accidents in Northern Ireland so far this year - 9 more than at the same point in 2013. Police say they will be increasing the presence on the roads to target motorists driving at excessive speeds, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or without paying due attention - such as looking at their mobile phone while behind the wheel. Road policing head Gerry Murray says these are the "principal causes of the most serious road traffic collisions in which people are killed or seriously injured on roads across Northern Ireland."
