Drink and drug drivers, motorists using mobile phones and speeding offenders are to be clamped down on during a police operation in the region today.
Police and partner agencies will be targeting a range of motoring offences during the operation today (June 13).
Operation Alliance will take place from 10am in the area of Brampton Hut junction on the A1 and will tackle the so-called “fatal four” - speeding, mobile phones, seatbelts, and drink and drug driving.
Insp Rebecca Rowley-Smith, from the tri-force road policing unit, said: “This operation aims to remind people of the importance of driving within the law and avoiding those offences that put lives at risk.
“We also want to disrupt criminals using the main arterial routes through the county.”
