Five people reported for traffic offences in Ingoldmells
Main article content
As our Summertime Policing Plan continues across the coast, our teams have been actively carrying out road safety stops and removing vehicles from the roads.
The Road Safety Checkpoint was deployed in Ingoldmells on the weekend, 8 July, and we proactively stopped 172 vehicles.
The evening resulted in a number of traffic offence reports with two vehicles being seized due to having no insurance. It is estimated that the economic impact of uninsured drivers to insurance companies is around £400 million per year, which is ultimately added onto the premiums of motorists with valid policies. Driving uninsured in the UK gives police the power to seize and potentially destroy your car.
Chief Inspector Lee St Quinton said: “We will continue to carry out stop checks across the coast along with various other operations to help make the coastal road network the safest that it can be.
“As part of our Summertime Policing Plan, we will continue to work with partner agencies to help visitors and residents feel safe and welcome across the coast.”
