More than 100 road offences have been detected locally by the PSNI over the past month, it has been revealed.

During September officers from the Local Policing Team B in Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon conducted road safety patrols and checks aimed at tackling driving behaviour linked to serious road traffic collisions.

Over 100 offences linked to speeding, no seatbelts, misuse of mobile phones and no insurance were detected.

Inspector Jon Burrows said: “Lives are lost and ruined on our roads every year and it is important we take enforcement action against driver behaviours that cause collisions and educate road users about their responsibility to make our roads safer.”
