Devon and Cornwall Police have introduced Infrared low Light cameras across the force’s network and have already caught someone who was driving at 101mph in what’s described as “filthy” weather on the M5.
The website SomersetLive.co.uk quotes a tweet by the roads policing team saying, “The weather’s filthy… heavy rain, spray and reduced visibility. 101mph is just madness.”
It quotes Marcus Laine, operations manager for the Peninsula Road Safety Partnership as saying, “Infrared lighting enables officers to continue enforcing speeding vehicles in reduced light.
“This demonstration aims to show the public our increased capability and our commitment to reducing fatal and serious injury collisions for which speed continues to be a major contributory factor.”
