CAMBRIDGESHIRE: Motoring offences

OVER 110 motoring offences have been identified during an operation to target careless driving.

Since the beginning of October. Cambs police officers have been out on the county’s roads in both marked and unmarked vehicles enforcing offences, such as not being in proper control of a vehicle.

One person was arrested for careless driving, two foreign drivers were fined for driving without due care totalling £600 and 76 drivers were reported for summons for due care.

Twenty nine fixed penalty notices were issued for not being in proper control and two drivers were given verbal warnings for due care.

PC Steve Gedney, casualty reduction officer, said: “These results show that there are still far too many motorists who think it is acceptable to commit offences when driving.

“Not only are they putting their own lives at risk but also the lives of other drivers. These irresponsible drivers will not only be targeted during our days of action but every day of the year.”
