Police have been carrying out speeding operations in two major roads in Mansfield. Six drivers were stopped for driving over the speed limit in Nottingham Road and Chatsworth Road on Wednesday, June 15.

Officers say the drivers, who were all breaking the 30mph speed limit by between six miles per hour up to 11 miles per hour, were issued with a Traffic Offence Report and educated on the dangers of speeding. It is all part of a Fatal Four operation which focuses on the four most common reasons why a death occurs on the road: drink and drug driving, speeding, using a mobile phone while driving and not wearing a seat belt.

Mansfield District Police said: “This morning the Mansfield Operation Reacher Team have attended Nottingham Road and Chatsworth Drive, Mansfield where they have been conducting a Fatal 4 Operation. Several vehicles were stopped and drivers were given words of advice about their manner of driving.
