Be Wiser Insurance

Those who break the law in their vehicles close to Shelley Park in Derbyshire are to be sought by police as part of a crackdown on such behaviour, a local news source comments.

Chesterfield Today states that Parkhouse Safer Neighbourhood Team has received a number of complaints about the behaviour of motorists close to the site.

Now Police Community Support Officer Lesley Bacon wants to "solve this problem".

It may be that such action could also result in local people making fewer car insurance policy claims.

The official said: "Safer Neighbourhoods is about working together and that is what we are doing here. We will continue our patrols and take action against these nuisance drivers."

Meanwhile, police in the region are appealing to anyone who witnessed a crash on the M1 last Friday which resulted in the death of a motorist, reports the Derbyshire Times.
