A crackdown on driver behaviour around the Isle of Lewis led to 44 drivers being fined or reported for road traffic offences over the weekend.

The Road Traffic Policing unit from Dingwall was in action between Friday July 19th and Sunday July 21st as part of the continuing Operation Cedar, aimed at improving safety on the roads in the Highlands and Islands.

Officers issued 33 fixed penalties for offences including using a mobile phone while driving, driving without a valid MOT and for vehicle defects such as bald tyres and lights not working.

A total of 11 people are to be reported to the Procurator Fiscal, nine for speeding, one for dangerous driving and one for careless driving.
