Ten drivers were fined and a vehicle was seized as police responded to community concerns about road safety.

Officers form the Ashfield Neighbourhood Team carried out a proactive “Fatal Four” roads policing operation in Stoneyford Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, on Sunday afternoon.

Nine drivers were caught speeding and another was fined for using a mobile phone at the wheel. A vehicle was also seized after its driver was found to have no valid driving licence.

Fatal Four offences – speeding, mobile phone use, drink and drug driving, and not wearing a seatbelt – are the main causes of deaths and serious injuries on UK roads.

Inspector Mark Dickson, district commander for Ashfield, said: “Tackling reckless and dangerous driving remains one of our key neighbourhood priorities, and local residents have been telling us for some time that they are concerned about antisocial behaviour and standards of driving in this area.

“In response we have planned and delivered several proactive policing operations to catch offenders and send out a very clear message – that we take these issues very seriously and will take action against people who break the law on our roads or behave in an antisocial way.”
