Police are warning drivers to take extra care when on the roads over the Easter period. Superintendent Muir Clark has announced that extra police will be on the roads over the weekend to monitor drivers in a bid to reduce speeding and unsafe driving.

“I don’t want my officers to have to stop you, so please be responsible and enjoy Easter. We want you to enjoy yourselves, but just exercise that little bit of care and expect the unexpected,” he said.

Mr Clark also commented on recent statistics that show 8 people have died on Northern Ireland’s roads since January 1st 2012, the lowest at this period since records began. “The DoE have put out some very powerful ads over the past few years. Over the past 18 months, we have put about 40,000 people through the speed awareness course. Hopefully that is having an effect.”
