Our roads policing and specialist operations unit has teamed up with neighbourhood policing teams to address anti-social driving around Newport and Monmouthshire.
Operation Drift ran on Sunday 23 October with the aim to tackle anti-social driving in Monmouthshire South and Newport East.
Our teams conducted speed enforcement checks in Undy, Rogiet, Caldicot, Wye Valley link road, Chepstow, M48, M4 and the A4810 between Spytty and Magor.
Throughout the course of the day:
This is in addition to the 40 TORs issued on Wednesday 19 October for excess speed on the A4810.
We will look to run similar activities over the coming weeks.
PC Sean Fletcher said:
“We all have a role to play in ensuring the safety of road users and pedestrians. That role includes driving carefully and responsibly.
“Those who choose to break the law on our roads not only put themselves at risk but others too.
“We’re committed to increasing the safety of all road users in Gwent and Operation Drift is one of the ways we tackle these motoring offences.
“I hope the results from this operation send a clear message that driving irresponsibly is unacceptable and you will be dealt with robustly.”
