The campaign, included in the 2023 National Inspection Plan (PNF), will run until October 9th to "alert drivers to the risks of driving at excessive speeds, given that this is one of the main causes of accidents on the roads and is responsible for more than 60% of registered infractions", states the National Road Safety Authority (ANSR), PSP and GNR, in a joint statement.

The three entities emphasize that, in a collision, the probability of fatalities increases depending on the speed at which the vehicles are traveling.

ANSR, PSP and GNR recall that driving at excessive speed is a safety risk, noting that speed is the main cause of a third of all fatal accidents.

The action taking place from today is the ninth awareness and inspection campaign of the 11 planned under the 2023 PNF, with two more campaigns planned until the end of the year.
