Almost 400 drivers were caught speeding in Brighton and Hove in the first two days of a crackdown by Sussex Police.

They were among 894 caught across the county after the crackdown started just over a week ago (Monday 22 August).

In Brighton and Hove mobile camera operators filmed 80 drivers exceeding the speed limit while 312 were flashed by the 11 Gatso cameras around the city.

Sergeant Paul Wood, of the Roads Policing Unit, said: “This week-long campaign reinforces the speed enforcement work that officers carry out every day.

“Driving too fast for the road or the weather conditions is extremely dangerous and is a major contributory factor towards collisions.

“Part of this campaign is about educating people regarding the consequences of their actions.

“Motorists who speed pose a real risk to themselves, their passengers and other road users.”

Sussex Police said that dangerous driving could be reported by phoning 0845 6070999 or through the Operation Crackdown website.
