Road Traffic Collision on the A14 at Creeting St Mary
Suffolk: Lorry Driver Crackdown
Suffolk Police's Casualty Reduction Team has held an operation to crackdown this week on lorry drivers who break the law and put other road users as risk.
The large goods vehicle enforcement campaign ran between Tuesday 19th and Friday 22nd June.
The operation has seen officers patrolling the A14 and A12 dual carriageways with an aim of detecting a range of offences, particularly those that can distract drivers such as using a mobile phone, eating or reading a map whilst driving.
Police have accepted the loan of a large goods vehicle tractor unit from the Roy Humphrey Group of Brome, so that officers can see into cabs and gather video evidence of drivers breaking the law.
A team of motorcyclists have also accompanied the police lorry and stopped any identified offenders.
