Police in nationwide traffic control campaign this week

Efforts part of speeding awareness campaign

If you have a car, you'd best be on your most pristine driving behaviour this week if you hope to avoid speeding fines and the like.

From Monday October 20 until Sunday October 26, the police will implement a national traffic control campaign, particularly focusing on drivers exceeding the speed limit.

“The speeding control supports the Council for Safe Traffic's speeding campaign 'Reduce the speed',” the Police explained in a press release.

“The goal of the campaign is to focus on the lives saved by reducing speeds. The Council for Safe Traffic has put up signs alongside the roads throughout Denmark that will, over the next three weeks, encourage motorists to reduce their speeds.

The traffic control will occur via patrols, checkpoints and assistance from speed traps.

The police said that while speeding on Danish roads has reduced over the last years, it remains one of the biggest killers in traffic.
