Moray MP Douglas Ross is backing a national road safety campaign aimed at speeding drivers.
The charity BRAKE organises Road Safety Week every year, and this year’s event runs from November 16-22 and the theme for 2020 is ‘No Need to Speed’.
Last year, 19 people were killed on the roads in Moray, Aberdeenshire, and Aberdeen, with 511 people injured.
Mr Ross has previously won an award for his campaigning work to make roads safer for young motorists.
Scottish Conservative MP for Moray Douglas Ross said:
“I have seen the devastation that dangerous driving can bring to families and communities across Moray, and I am determined to do whatever I can to help bring an end to this needless waste of lives.
“I am pleased to support Road Safety Week and happy to endorse the message on speeding.
“Research suggests that seven in ten male motorists admit to having driven faster than 100mph.
“That illustrates the scale of the problem and there is no doubt that excessive speed is a big factor in many accidents here in Moray.
“Campaigns like this one that focus on speeding help to draw attention to the problem and hopefully lead to better driver behaviour.”
