More than 30 drivers caught speeding during second week of police road safety operation

Police have dealt with more than 30 drivers for speeding offences in the second full week of road safety initiative Operation CEDAR in the Highlands and Islands.

These included one motorist who will be reported after a detection of a vehicle travelling at 43mph in a 20mph speed limit outside a primary school in the Black Isle area.

The past week of activity under CEDAR (Challenge Educate Detect and Reduce) has focused on the Wester Ross and Dingwall area.

In total 32 drivers have been dealt with for speeding offences, while two vehicles have been seized.

A further 20 drivers have been dealt with for a variety of road traffic offences in the area, including driving without insurance, driving licence  offences and vehicles being used without an MOT.

Also of note, 14 drivers have been arrested across the Highlands & Islands region in relation to drink driving offences over the past week, with 11 of these offences taking place over the past weekend.

Inspector Kevin Macleod said: “All of this enforcement activity across the Dingwall and Wester Ross area is a direct response to concerns raised by our communities, who regularly raise road safety as a key priority for us as a service.

“The number of drivers stopped for speeding offences is concerning, with the incident near a school of particular note.

“The 20mph limits near schools are in place for a reason and exist to keep children and others. To ignore the limit to such an extent is obviously dangerous and shows no consideration for wider public around schools.

“Drink driving remains a significant concern and we will continue to work to educate people about the dangers and take action against those who choose to disregard the safety of everyone on the roads.”
