74 DRIVERS STOPPED IN WEST LOTHIAN AS PART OF OPERATION SCANDIUM ACTION

We’ve been carrying out more checks under Operation Scandium as part of a day of action to tackle metal theft, road safety and road crime.

Yesterday (Thursday) officers from Road Policing with partners stopped 74 vehicles near junction 4 of the M8.

Three vehicles were seized and drivers reported for having no insurance.

18 other drivers were either fined or reported to the Procurator Fiscal in connection with 9 offences, which include HGV’s with faults, vehicles not having a valid MOT and possession of cannabis.

A further 30 people were given warnings for 3 offences which included children not being secured safely within an approved car seat and issues surrounding the maintenance of the vehicle.

Our colleagues from HMRC also have a number of positive enquiries to follow up.

These results show the importance of activity like this in detecting a range of offences and helping to keep our roads safe.

Not a bad day at the office!!
