Luxembourg is one of 23 countries participating in the "Slow Down Europe" campaign.
24-hour anti-speeding campaign in #Luxembourg
Police in the grand duchy are taking part in a 24-hour Europe-wide crackdown on speeding.
The campaign started on 19 April at 6am and will last until 6am on 20 April. The operation is part of the Europe-wide “Slow Down Europe” campaign, now in its third edition, organised by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL). A total of 23 countries are taking part.
“This speed marathon is all about prevention…We want to get into the heads of drivers, not their purses,” TISPOL president Aidan Reid commented on the organisation’s website.
According to Le Quotidien, last year the grand ducal police force made around 200 speed checks in 24 hours, with some 250 instances of speeding detected.
