Lincolnshire Police have launched a road safety campaign called 'One Road, One Week.'

Officers and staff across the county will be focussing on the A15, which passes through Bourne, during a national road safety week.

A police statement said: "We are supporting the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) road safety campaign which aims to target a road or location of high harm for one week.

"During this week, we will be targeting road users on the A15. We will be focussing our efforts on the A15 which is one of the main arterial routes through the county.

"It carries a wide range of business and personal vehicles, drivers and riders of all ages and we aim to maximise our efforts by reaching as many drivers and riders as possible."

The statement continued: "We often talk about the Fatal 4, which are the cause of a substantial amount of collisions where people are killed or seriously injured.

"The Fatal 4 are inappropriate speed, using a mobile phone, driving or riding while under the influence of drink or drugs and not wearing a seat belt.

"As well as targeting these offences we will be enforcing the full range of road traffic offences. We’ll be keeping drivers and riders longer to give their vehicles a full check over, make sure their documents are in order and the drivers are licensed and fit to drive.

"It is our aim to achieve a sustainable reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured in collisions on our roads in Lincolnshire and this is just part of our plan to achieve this."
