Six drivers have been charged after a police operation.
Police were responding to community concerns about driver behaviour in Banchory at the weekend.
The drivers were charged and reported to the Procurator Fiscal for a number of different offences including loud exhausts, windscreen obstructions and defective tyres.
Another driver was given an official antisocial behaviour marker for his driving on Dee Street in the town.
Road Policing Sergeant Andrew Meikleham said: “Following a number of recent complaints from local residents regarding antisocial driving, road policing officers have conducted regular patrols in the area.
“As a result of these patrols we have stopped and spoken to a number of drivers to discuss their driving behaviour and / or their vehicles and highlight how their actions impact on residents, their safety and the safety of other road users.
“Antisocial driving involves speeding or inconsiderate driving including accelerating harshly, revving engines, driving a “circuit”, and making vehicle modifications that result in excessive noise.
“If you are caught driving antisocially and breaking the law you will be charged, you may find yourself with penalty points and where the law allows, we will seize your vehicle.”
