Thirteen drivers have been charged in relation to speeding by police in Skye and Lochalsh, following a week-long safety campaign.

Officers have now issued a warning about the dangers of speeding after a 55-year-old man was charged when a vehicle was detected driving at 70mph in a 40mph zone at Balmacara.

A 45-year-old man was also charged in connection with a detection of 55mph in a 30mph zone in Broadford.

Both of these drivers have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal and the remainder have been issued with fixed penalty notices.

A further 10 drivers were issued with warnings regarding speed, vehicle defects or careless driving, including one driver for a close pass of a cyclist in the Sleat area of Skye.

A vehicle was seized in the Broadford area due to being uninsured.

Sergeant Bruce Crawford said: “Road safety is the main issue raised with police in Skye and Lochalsh and such enforcement activity is going to continue.

“In addition to this we are working with partners to ensure specific stretches of road are made as safe as possible.

“We are also keen to work with our communities and would encourage local groups to contact us to report concerns about speeding or for advice in relation to what residents can do to help local officers.”

Anyone with concerns can call police on 101 or 999 in an emergency situation.
