Dangerous driving: When are the police using speed guns?

People have always been informed when speed guns were used, according to the Police.

A spokesperson for the Police told Newsbook.com.mt that the Police invested in a number of mobile speed monitoring devices of the latest technology in the last couple of weeks which will be used when necessary.

The Police has no obligation to inform the people about when the speed guns will be in use but chooses to do so out of respect of the judicial principle, the spokesperson said. The project, which is based on international studies is aimed to avoid injuries and deaths in the Maltese streets.

The Police spokesperson said that the use of speed guns will enforce the effectiveness of the speed cameras and discourage people from driving carelessly and at dangerous speeds. Therefore, the Police believes that this will decrease the amount of serious accidents in the road.
