Thirteen people have died on Wiltshire’s roads so far this year. See more here about our campaign to help reduce fatalities and keep you safe on the roads
Thirteen people have died on Wiltshire’s roads so far this year.
This comes after 29 people lost their lives on roads in our county in 2022. In addition, the Serious Collision Investigation Team (SCIT) has already been called out to 19 of the most serious road traffic collisions since January (where injuries sustained are the most serious) – compared to 20 incidents for the entirety of last year.
In response to this, across the summer, we are making road safety a force-wide focus in a bid to reduce the number of fatalities on the county’s roads.
Most of the fatalities this year have occurred on the M4, A303, A338, A360, A3102 and A4.
Wiltshire Police's Community Speed Enforcement officers have visited more than 340 locations and issued 3,364 tickets, speed awareness courses and court referrals between January 1st and August 4th 2023.
The Roads Policing Unit have issued 6,293 notices for offences which include speeding, mobile phone use and not wearing seatbelts for same time period.
Across the summer period, we will be sharing stories from our officers, publicising details of road enforcement activity and asking our communities to play a part in making our roads safer.
You should follow us on our social media accounts for the latest information and see below for a summary of all of our activity.
