Fix Radio Manchester Campaigns To Stop Police Using Mobile Phones To Catch Speeding Drivers.

01Apr19

Greater Manchester Police are the first force in the UK to use GPS data on mobile phones to catch speeding drivers. Chief Constable Liam Watkins of GMP appeared on Fix Radio Manchester this morning and said, “If you don’t want to get caught, don’t speed”.

Furious motorists called into Fix Radio to complain about the police’s new tactics. Mark from Wythenshawe was one of many angry callers into the Breakfast Show. He called from the A538, Hale Road in Altrincham and said his van had been pulled over, a police officer confiscated his phone, plugged it into a device which scanned GPS data on the phone. When Mark was given his phone back he was also handed a fixed penalty notice with a £100 fine and three points on his licence for doing 37mph in a 30mph limit.  

You need to flick your phone off before you get behind the wheel. Flick it or ticket!

Fix Radio Manchester has set up on e-petition to Parliament to stop the police using data on mobile phones to catch speeding drivers. You can sign the petition here;
