Wednesday 2nd November – not a good day for many motorists…

28 November 2016

On Wednesday November 2 Essex Police ran a Surround a Town Operation designed to detect offenders using the roads and increase road safety.

Officers used Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) to identify suspect vehicles which were then intercepted and taken to stop-check sites at services off the A12 at Boreham and on Broomfield Road, Chelmsford.

During the operation, 36 people were dealt with for failing to wear a seatbelt and 23 drivers were stopped and dealt with for using a mobile phone behind the wheel.

Four vehicles were seized because their drivers didn’t have appropriate insurance and 15 were found not to have valid MOTs. 

Two drivers were dealt with for driving otherwise than in accordance with the terms of their licence and another three for not being in proper control of their vehicle. One motorcyclist was stopped for driving carelessly.
