Campaign to protect road workers

Road workers are being put in serious danger by speeding drivers in the Isle of Man, the government has revealed.

Transport minister David Anderson said motorists had been caught driving through road works at 65mph, with 85% breaking the 20mph limit.

A campaign being launched by the Department of Transport aims to get drivers to slow down.

Mr Anderson said the he had not ruled out measures to photograph all speeding drivers on the island.

Drivers have been seen ignoring speed restrictions put in place where workers were carrying out improvements on highways.
