Why is car crime not in­cluded?

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

THE po­lice re­cently is­sued crime statis­tics for the var­i­ous re­gions of Ash­ford, with the claim that crime is high­est in the town cen­tre. Yet thou­sands of driv­ers ex­ceed the speed limit ev­ery day in Ken­ning­ton Road, Faver­sham Road, and Can­ter­bury Road, which is com­mit­ting a crime. Speed­ing con­sti­tutes an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour, poses the great­est threat of vi­o­lence, and se­ri­ously im­pacts on our qual­ity of life. Why are they not in­cluded un­der street crime, or car crime, be­cause they fit into both of th­ese cat­e­gories? Per­haps our town cen­tre is not such a danger­ous place to be in af­ter all! Ted Prangnell, Ken­ning­ton.
