1 min read

More than 30 tickets were handed out to motorists on the Isle of Wight last Thursday (April 28), in a crackdown on road safety.

A total of 32 motorists were issued with tickets, with another six informal discussions on road safety.

Offences included 13 for seat belt breaches, two altered exhausts, one speeding, and one for use of a mobile phone while driving.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: “Mainland roads policing officers joined their Island colleagues for a road safety operation that we’ve run regularly over the last two years.

“One area of interest for our officers is making sure there’s no speeding or anti-social behaviour on the Military Road. Our officers on two wheels have also been engaging with the motorbike community as part of the operation.”
