Phone and seatbelt clampdown in Kent
As part of the latest European TISPOL campaign, Kent & Medway Safety Camera Partnership (K&MSCP) and Kent Police are clamping down on motorists caught using a phone or not wearing a seatbelt.
The enforcement will take place at safety camera sites across Kent and Medway, 16-22 February. Anyone spotted using a phone or not wearing a seatbelt will be pulled over by police officers.
Katherine Barrett, communications officer for K&MSCP, said: “Our safety cameras are at locations where people have been killed or seriously injured, so by reducing the number of offences committed at these sites we hope to lower casualties even further. We are not coy about our operations and all the camera locations and statistics can be seen at: www.kmscp.org.”
