Anti-social drivers targeted by Surrey Police

Surrey Police stopped more than 100 vehicles in a campaign which targeted motorists' "anti-social" driving.

During the three-day operation in the Mole Valley action was taken against half of those motorists stopped.

Fixed penalty notices, prohibition notices and summonses were issued for driving without wearing a seat belt, and having no MOT.

The operation formed part of Surrey Police and Surrey County Council's Drive SMART campaign.

Officers were working with Vosa (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) during the operation which covered the A24 and A25 as well as other locations in Mole Valley.

PC Tom Arthur said: "It is important to continue to carry out spot checks like this to reassure the community that we take all traffic offences seriously.

"Getting tough on anti-social motorists is a priority for Surrey Police and it is hoped this will give people in Mole Valley the confidence that we are listening to their concerns and are committed to tackling anti-social driving."
