More than 1,650 speeding offences logged in Greater Manchester in one month

By Sara Backhouse

Police community support officers (PCSOs) with Greater Manchester Police recorded more than 1,650 speeding offences on the region's roads during September.

The traffic PCSOs carried out speed enforcement throughout the Greater Manchester Police force area last month, making 150 separate visits spread across 10 districts.

As well as targeting criminal activity, the officers also took part in campaigns to protect vulnerable road users.

A post on the Greater Manchester Police Twitter page read: "#TrafficPCSOs carried out speed enforcement throughout the GMP force area during September 150 visits spread across 10 districts, including vulnerable road user campaigns. Over 1650 offences recorded."

The force reminded anyone wanting to report traffic offences not to use social media channels, as these are not monitored 24 hours a day. Instead, collisions or crimes should be reported by calling 999 if it is an emergency, or 101 for non-emergencies.
