Surrey police to tackle dangerous driving this Christmas

Motorists in Surrey are set to see a police clampdown on the road this Christmas as officers pledge to reduce the rate of dangerous and drink-related driving.

Caterham Valley neighbourhood specialist officer PC Martin Bassom said police intend to take robust measures to enforce acceptable driving standards this festive season.

This news comes after the recent success of a day-long multi-agency operation which led to officers deeming 19 vehicles as unroadworthy, reporting ten motorists for driving without tax and issuing four fixed-penalty notices.

PC Bassom added: “Speeding and anti-social driving is a genuine concern for residents particularly at this time of year.”

Meanwhile, police in Leeds have also unveiled plans to tackle the problem of car-related crime in the city.

Operation Decibel will see officers carry out disruption checks on known offenders and distribute season’s greeting cards reminding them that they are being watched over the holiday period.
