Tackling Anti-Social Driving in Ruthin
North Wales Police officers in Ruthin have joined forces with their colleagues in Roads Policing to undertake an operation tackling anti-social driving in the town.
Police CarPutting the brakes on bad and anti-social driving as well as ensuring that vehicles stopped are fit for the road are the aims of the operation. It got underway a few weeks ago as a direct result of concerns that had been raised by local residents.
“The operation will continue as long as the issue persists,” confirmed local Sergeant Dave Nickels. “Dangerous and careless driving will not be tolerated and those found braking the law face not only prosecution but also could have their vehicles seized.”
To date several vehicles have been seized due to the manner of driving and a number of owners received advice regarding the construction and use offences following an examination of their cars.
Sgt Nickels added: “All drivers, including young drivers are urged to drive safely, sensibly and to show consideration for all road users and pedestrians.
“We urge anyone who witnesses anti-social driving to please get in touch with their local officers or by calling us on 101.”
Anyone who witnesses anti-social driving, or anybody who has concerns should contact North Wales Police on 101. Alternatively contact can also be made via the live web chat service:
