Enhance the Roads Policing Unit with Better Technology

Almost everyone in Cheshire is affected by the road network on a daily basis either as a driver, passenger, cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian.

Although the number of fatal and serious road traffic collisions is down by 24%, there are still too many on our roads. I remain committed to ensuring a robust focus on policing Cheshire’s roads to encourage users to be considerate of others and make them as safe as possible.

As Police and Crime Commissioner I will:

  • Ensure the best use
    of technology such as ‘Automatic Number Plate Recognition’ to police our roads;

  • Encourage the use of ‘Community Speed Watch’ volunteers to monitor
    and seek to alter drivers’ attitudes and behaviour towards speeding; and

  • Develop the use of new technology to tackle people who drive under the influence of drugs.
