25 Fixed Penalty Notices issued during road safety operation

Police conducted a road safety operation on Sunday (27th March) across Portrush and Portstewart. Officers from Local Policing Teams, the Road Policing Unit and Tactical Support Group patrolled the area and spoke to a number of drivers and issued advice.

The operation was put in place due to recent complaints about anti-social behaviour caused by some drivers in these areas.

“A number of drivers were spoken to, and advice and warning was provided to many drivers for a number of offences ranging from no seat belt, excess speed, using mobile phone whilst driving and no insurance.

“We wish to remind all motorists intending to visit the North Coast this weekend to make sure that their vehicle is road worthy, insured and that they obey the rules of the road. We also ask all drivers to be considerate to other motorists and members of the public in the manner of their driving particularly within built up areas and 30mph zones.”
