‘Scary to see what people do at the wheel’
Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott, who spent a day with the officers driving the unmarked lorry, said: “Crime is important no matter where it takes place and that includes offences committed in residential, business and online environments, and on our roads too.
“I have made providing effective roads policing a priority for Kent Police and it was good to spend the day with the commercial vehicle unit and see innovative enforcement action being undertaken by a dedicated team of officers.
“It was really fascinating. It was also quite scary to see what people were doing at the wheel.
“As a passenger, I saw several people texting or using a phone while driving.
“Officers also pulled over a sports car for doing well over 100mph on the M20. I’m pleased to say the driver was dealt with on the spot.”
