Six drivers charged for road traffic offences in north-east

Police have charged six people in relation to road traffic offences in Aberdeenshire.

A number of drivers have been dealt with this week in relation to road traffic offences following community concerns regarding driver behaviour in Banchory.

Six drivers have been charged and reported to the Procurator Fiscal since Sunday for offences including loud exhausts, windscreen obstructions and defective tyres.

A further driver, has received an official Anti-Social Behaviour marker against himself and his vehicle in relation to driving in an antisocial manner at Dee Street in the town.

Road Policing Sergeant Andrew Meikleham said: “Following a number of recent complaints from local residents regarding antisocial driving, road policing officers have conducted regular patrols in the area.

“As a result of these patrols we have stopped and spoken to a number of drivers to discuss their driving behaviour and / or their vehicles and highlight how their actions impact on residents, their safety and the safety of other road users.

“Antisocial driving involves speeding, inconsiderate driving, including accelerating harshly, revving engines, driving a ‘circuit’, and making vehicle modifications that result in excessive noise.”

He added: “If you are caught driving anti-socially and breaking the law you will be charged, you may find yourself with penalty points and where the law allows, we will seize our vehicle.

“I would also take this opportunity to encourage the community to report their concerns at the time.  If you see a vehicle driving antisocially, take note of the vehicle details including registration number and ideally have someone with you who can corroborate the driver’s actions. Report it to us and we will deal with the matter.

“We will continue to undertake patrols in the area in order to deter any further issues.

Anyone with information or concerns should contact Police Scotland on 101. Information can also be given anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
