Police have fined eight people for motoring offences and charged two more after a large unofficial car meeting on Aberdeen Beach Boulevard.
The incident took place on Saturday, June 18, after a patrol was carried out in the area.
Police say there was a large number of vehicles and pedestrians in the vicinity.
Police say a number of offences were committed:
- Eight men, aged between 18 and 31, were issued fixed penalty notices for road traffic offences.
- A 21-year-old man was charged with drug offences and will appear in court at a later date.
- Three men, aged 18, 19 and 21, were issued anti-social driving warnings. This means their cars can be seized if they commit further offences.
- A 26-year-old female was reported to the Procurator Fiscal for a road traffic offence.
The area has hosted large car meet-ups before.
The event was advertised on social media and videos soon emerged of cars and bikes performing tricks, burning rubber and causing noise.
Police say ‘majority acted in a responsible manner’
Regarding the incident on Saturday night, Constable Ritchie, of the road policing unit, said: “Our prime focus is reducing road traffic collisions on north-east roads and influencing driver behaviour.
“Given a large number of people that attended this event it was reassuring that the majority of attendees acted in a responsible manner.
“These events cause a significant disruption to the road network and surrounding community and we will continue to work with partners to encourage that these events take place on private land.”
