North Wales Police road patrol campaign

North Wales Police in Anglesey are increasing their road patrols this weekend as part of a campaign to reduce the number of collisions in the area.

It comes after two local men died in a road accident last weekend.

As part of assisting the community come to terms with the collision and reassure the public that North Wales Police and our partners will do all it can to reduce serious and fatal road traffic collisions we will continue with our preventative campaigns on the A5025 and the Island as a whole. Extra High Visibility patrols will endeavour to reassure, educate and where necessary prosecute any driving offences identified.

Additionally our Officers will be visiting local colleges and comprehensive schools to continue to educate young drivers about the dangers of the Fatal 5 motoring offences which can often lead to the most tragic outcome. The Fatal 5 are not wearing a seatbelt, driving dangerously and taking risks, drink and drug driving, speeding or using a mobile phone whilst driving. We want people to think about their driving and understand the devastating impact their actions can have.
