‘Help us reduce injury and death on our roads’ is the message from local police as they launch a road safety operation which will run across roads throughout E District (which incorporates Newry & Mourne) over the next three weeks. E District Operations Superintendent, Davy Moore explained to Newry Times, “Road safety is a local priority for us. There has been a worrying increase in the number of people killed on our roads, including 18 people killed on the roads in E District alone this year to date. “While the vast majority of right thinking people realise that speeding and other offences such as drink driving are unacceptable, there is still an irresponsible minority who ignore all advice and warnings and this operation is aimed at those people who continue to put themselves and others at risk.

The dedicated PSNI team who will focus on road safety across E District over the next three weeks

“This weekend alone across E District seven people were detected driving with excess alcohol. It is unbelievable that people continue to take risks like this on the road. “We will be conducting dedicated patrols and will focus on education and enforcement. We are asking for your help to make sure that our roads are safe for everyone who uses them. “We are asking all motorists to reduce their speed, wear seatbelts, do not use your mobile phone while you are driving and never, ever drink and drive. He added, “We will continue to play our part and enforce the law and together we can prevent further death and injury on the roads.”
