Over 60 drivers were ticketed for offences including using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt as part of a police crackdown on motoring offences in Buckinghamshire.

Thames Valley Police officers from South Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes issued over 60 tickets for motoring offences whilst taking part in a road safety day in the Aylesbury Vale this week.

In a productive day for the force, 18 drivers were ticketed for using a mobile phone whilst driving, 20 for not wearing seatbelts, one for careless driving and three for driving without insurance.

Three vehicles were seized by Roads Policing officers for being uninsured, one was ticketed for not having an MOT, another for parking on zigzags at a pedestrian crossing and one car with window tints was given a Fixed Penalty Notice for only allowing 44 per cent of light through its front glass.

Six drivers were also stopped along the Wendover Bypass for driving “well in excess” of the 60 mph speed limit, and another six motorists were ticketed for breaking the 30 mph limit along Wendover Road.

One driver was reported for driving with no insurance, failing to wear a seatbelt and using a mobile phone while driving, and another 7.5-tonne truck driver was caught striking other vehicles as a result of an overdistributed load and operating without insurance.

That’s not all, as a further three motorists failed roadside drug tests and were arrested by officers on the spot. They are currently awaiting the results of blood sample analysis.
