The Return Of Operation Tramline
A week of action along the M4 Motorway has recently been undertaken by South Wales Police, Dyfed Powys Police and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). An unmarked HGV has been used to give officers an elevated position in order to detect a range of motoring offences.
Wayne Tucker, Road Safety Manager at South Wales Police said, “Recently, through Operation Tramline, 63 vehicles were stopped and a total of 98 offences detected. These included 48 seatbelt offences and 14 mobile phone offences.
“In addition, officers dealt with 29 construction and use offences, including illegal tyres and defective lights.
“As a result of the operation, 55 Traffic Officer Reports (TORs) were issued to offenders, resulting in court appearances.”
Road safety remains a priority across Wales, with enforcement agencies working together to tackle and change poor driving behaviour.
