A TOP national award from Highways England has been secured by Warwickshire Police for the second year running in recognition of their performance in ‘Operation Tramline’.
During Operation Tramline, officers use a specially-adapted HGV ‘supercab’ owned by Highways England to observe driver behaviour in all vehicles and deal with any offences on the road network.
Marie Biddulph from Highways England said: “Winning this award for the second year running is testament to the commitment of Warwickshire Police in helping us to tackle dangerous driving on our roads.
“The support of our police partners across the country is vital for the success of Operation Tramline and our efforts to reach that minority of drivers who are putting themselves and others at risk by simply ignoring the law.
“Together, through initiatives such as Operation Tramline, we are helping to make our roads safer.”
Chief Constable Martin Jelley said: “Tackling unsafe driver behaviour remains a high priority for the force, behind every death or serious collision on our roads are devastated families.
“We need everyone to drive safely and with consideration to others on our roads.”
