A recent road safety impact day carried out by North Wales Police in Deeside highlighted offences including disqualified drivers and driving whilst carrying too many passengers in a vehicle.

Officers from North Wales Police’ Roads Policing Unit targeted the Deeside area earlier this week carrying out checks on drivers and vehicles.

Amongst the offences identified during the operation were a disqualified driver and a driver arrested under the new drug driving legislation.

Four drivers were stopped for having no insurance and two vehicles were seized at the roadside.

Another vehicle was seized due to having red diesel and stops were also made on drivers using their mobile phones and driving without a seatbelt.

One driver was also dealt with for having too many passengers in the vehicle.

One was also dealt with for driving without insurance.

Sergeant Nicky Collins from the Roads Policing Unit said:

“The impact day was done as part of our ongoing commitment to keeping the roads safe for all. A minority of people flout the law and think they can get away with it. We will continue to take action against drivers who commit offences on our roads.”
