Police Board Vice-Chair Disappointed At Number Of Road Offences Uncovered By Day Of Action

>> 15 May 2011

Mid-Formartine SNP councillor and Vice-Convener of Grampian Police Joint Board Allan Hendry has expressed his disappointment at the number of drivers reported for road traffic offences during the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (ACPOS) day of action carried out last week.

Road Policing and Local Policing Teams were active throughout the area and 36 persons were reported for speeding, 2 for dangerous driving and 20 for seat belt related offences. Of these offenders 16 related to persons aged between 17 and 25.

Commenting, Councillor Hendry, himself a former police officer, said:

“I should like to pay tribute to the officers involved in this road safety exercise who by their actions are making the roads safer for the public to use.

“Some of the offences uncovered as a result are truly horrifying, such as individuals on motorcycles travelling well in excess of 100 miles per hour.

“I am also surprised and disappointed at the number of seat-belt offences uncovered. It should be common sense by now, some 30 years after legislation on seat belts was introduced, that a seat belt is there to provide protection in the event of an accident. It seems that reminders to motorists from Grampian Police are needed and I fully support further initiatives on these issues in future.”
