Acting Inspector Paul Smith says drivers going too fast can expect to be stopped and prosecuted:
“It is not acceptable on an island of this size that people are still being seriously injured on our roads. If the unexpected happens, such as a child stepping out, then the speed of your vehicle plays a huge part in whether or not you can stop in time.”
There were more than 300 road accidents in Jersey in 2017 that resulted in injury. 70 of those left people seriously hurt.
933 people were prosecuted for speeding offences last year. The average speed was 39 miles an hour.
