The Scottish Government has launched a new campaign to tackle speeding in Scotland, following the revelation that 1,536 cars were stopped in Aberdeen city centre last year.
The In town, Slow down campaign, created by the Scottish Government, in conjunction with Road Safety Scotland, is designed to highlight the dangers of speeding in cities.
The campaign will run over TV, radio, PR and social media.
Transport Minister, Humza Yousaf, said: “This campaign highlights the real implications of speeding on Scotland’s built-up roads, and reminds people driving too fast for the conditions can have serious consequences.
“The message is simple, in town, slow down.”
The problem isn’t restricted to Aberdeen, with 5,397 cars caught speeding in the Highlands and Islands last year.
Inspector Jon Barron of the Divisional Road Policing Unit stressed the importance of driving safely.
He said: “Only by following the rules of the road, by respecting each other and fully concentrating on what is going on around, can we all use the roads in the north east’s towns safely.”
