Ipswich: Driving operation is having great success

SUFFOLK: A scheme aimed at cutting down anti-social driving is enjoying a big success.

Operation Kayo stopped 50 vehicles on Saturday for ant-social driving and dangerously-maintained vehicles in Ipswich.

Road policing officers and Safer Neighbourhood Teams were in the town centre from 6.30pm-11.30pm.

Suffolk County Council staff and fire-fighters also spoke with drivers and issued leaflets called ‘Don’t Be Labelled a Bad Driver.’

Road policing officer, Sgt Kevin Stark, said: “With a high number of vehicles stopped and defects discovered this operation was clearly successful.”

He added: “We will continue to do work of this nature and hopefully this will send out a strong message that drivers need to take responsibility for their vehicle’s or they could face prosecution.”

During the operation two people received warnings and letters about required restrictions on their vehicles and three people were prosecuted for having noisy exhaust systems.
