Drivers urged to kill their speed

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service has joined forces with councils in the area to call for drivers to kill their speed.

Last year, for every person injured and/or rescued from a fire by West Yorkshire firefighters, there were five people injured and/or rescued in road traffic collisions.

ACO Craig McIntosh, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service’s director of fire safety, said: “Firefighters see all too often the devastating consequences of motorists who break the speed limit and drive too fast for the conditions. Many tragedies could sadly have been prevented if the driver had taken due care and considered other road users.”
