Winter driving campaign

VEHICLES will come under scrutiny across the region as part of Humberside Police’s 2013 winter driving campaign.

The force is launching the 2013 winter casualty reduction drive to check the condition of road vehicles with particular emphasis on lighting, tyres, washers, wipers, windscreen and window tints and brake defects.

The aim is to reduce the number of collisions, particularly those involving fatal and serious injury.

Throughout this month there will be an increase in high visibility policing on the roads to disrupt, prevent and detect criminal activity, reduce collisions, and reassure the public.

The campaign will include static road checks and random inspections. Pedal cycles as well as cars and other vehicles will be scrutinized and advice will be given to cyclists about the importance of high visibility clothing.
