Anti-speeding campaign on Facebook

AN ANTI-speeding campaign, launched to target drivers in the Dispatch district and the rest of Nottinghamshire via Facebook, has been hailed a success.

Notts County Council has been using the social-networking site to hammer home its safety initiative.

An advert targeting Facebook users in Nottinghamshire was viewed more than 575,000 times in the two weeks from the launch of the campaign.

The aim is to raise awareness of the potentially deadly consequences of speeding.
