Operation Classify was set up at the start of this year by officers from Bolton’s Prevention Hub which targets particular high-risk road routes in the area which has seen significant collisions over the past two years.

The aim of Operation Classify is to reduce death and serious injury on the roads of Bolton, which saw 71 serious collisions in 2022, nine of them sadly being fatalities. This trend continued into 2023.

Excessive speeding alongside drink and drug driving and driver standards have been the main key causes of road traffic collisions in the area.
