Police launch anti-over speeding drive today

The Police will control excessive speeding on a national scale, especially on the arterial highways from 21 March to 27 March, said an official press release.

The controls will be continued round the clock during the week using all available control means and resources.

The spring may cause very rapid changes in road conditions.

“In some places, the roads are in bad shape, and especially during night frost, the road surfaces become icy. Combined with serious speeding, these factors may be extremely dangerous,” said Chief Superintendent Heikki Ihalainen of the National Police Board.

This time, the focus of the Police speed controls is on extreme speeding.

“Naturally, all speeding is prohibited and so intervening with all cases also prevents the heavier excessive speeds. In fact, the Police hopes that car drivers would follow the speed limits next week, as they always should,” Ihalainen added.

Since Finland has not yet taken over the summer speed limits, Ihalainen finds it is very important that the difference in driving speed between the slower and speedier road users does not cause dangerous situations, let alone accidents.

“The control focus is on the arterial highways but speed and other traffic controls also take place in population centres,” he added.
