Over 332 motorists were caught undertaking excessive speeds on roads in the area as part of a crack down by police last Thursday.

Project Edward took place throughout the Dyfed Powys Police area, including Newtown and Montgomeryshire, to cut the number of deaths on European roads.

On average 70 people die on roads across Europe each day. The aim of Project Edward is to drive a lasting reduction in road deaths by encouraging all road users to reflect on their behaviour and attitude.
Sgt. Ian Price, Dyfed-Powys Police GoSafe Regional Coordinator, said: “GoSafe Cymru led the campaign, supported by Dyfed-Powys Police. Despite receiving 11 reports of road traffic collisions across the force, thankfully none resulted in life changing or life threatening injuries, or fatalities.”

While figures for Newtown specifically have not bene published, throughout the area 332 motorists were caught for excessive speeds, three were arrested for drug driving, one was arrested for driving while disqualified, 24 driving while using a mobile phone, 32 seat belt offences, 18 construction and use offences and 31 vehicles were seized for no insurance or tax or driving licence.
