Safety and speeding feature highly in the news this week as safety concerns are raised over all-lane running motorways and a speeding campaign is launched in Scotland. Plus, we take a look some of the UK's strangest home insurance claims.
Police Scotland has launched a week-long campaign targeting speeding motorists.
The aim of the campaign, which runs until May 9, is to educate motorists and other road users about the "potentially devastating effects" of speeding.
Reducing the number of people who are killed and injured in road accidents is one of the top priorities, Police Scotland said.
The campaign will also be used to discuss speed and other road safety issues with vulnerable road users, such as motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists.
According to the head of road policing for Police Scotland, chief superintendent Andy Edmonston, accidents injured more than 3,300 vulnerable road users in 2014, and claimed the lives of 95, representing nearly half the total number of road fatalities.
Emergency and breakdown recovery services have voiced safety concerns over the use of 'all-lane running' across the UK's major roads network.
The scheme was initially piloted on a stretch of the M42, with 'smart' sections of motorway now on the M1, M4, M5, M6 and M25.
Speaking at the Transport Committee evidence session in April, Metropolitan Police Service traffic management officer, Simon Wickenden, revealed the risk of collision for a stationary vehicle broken down on an all-lane-running motorway increases by 200%.
The RAC and the AA also raised safety concerns at the committee meeting.
