Crack­down on an­ti­so­cial driv­ing gets re­sults for po­lice on op­er­a­tion

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

PO­LICE stopped speed­ing driv­ers in their tracks in a crack­down on an­ti­so­cial driv­ing in a North-east town. Of­fi­cers car­ried out an op­er­a­tion in and around Keith at the week­end af­ter res­i­dents ex­pressed con­cerns about the way some peo­ple were driv­ing.

Po­lice mon­i­tored ve­hi­cles at the road­side on Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day – as those who got in touch about the is­sue said that is when most in­ci­dents oc­cur. Dur­ing the op­er­a­tion, po­lice spoke to four driv­ers in re­la­tion speed­ing.

Six other driv­ers were charged for of­fences in­clud­ing care­less driv­ing and driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance.

Sergeant Krys­tle Ross said: “Road safety is a pri­or­ity for us and we will con­tinue to tar­get those who choose to drive ir­re­spon­si­bly.

She added: “We’re aware of com­mu­nity con­cerns around driver be­hav­iour in the Keith area and ar­ranged for these days of ac­tion. Dur­ing the op­er­a­tion, we stopped and spoke to a num­ber of mo­torists in re­la­tion to driver be­hav­iour.”

Sgt Ross ap­pealed for any­one with con­cerns about an­ti­so­cial driv­ing to call po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
