More than 40 drivers have been stopped following a three-day North-east police operation.
The scheme, which took place last week between Monday and Wednesday in Elgin, targeted cars parking in restricted areas and antisocial driving around primary schools.
Officers carried out the operation at a number of schools in the town including St Sylvester’s, Linkwood, East End, New Elgin and Seafield Primary.
Pc Jad Leach explains: “The operation was carried out as a direct response to concerns from parents and residents in the Elgin area.
“As part of Operation CEDaR (Challenge, Educate, Detect and Reduce) we will continue to target parking in restricted areas and anti-social driving at schools.
“In total 41 motorists were educated and eight tickets were issued in relation to parking in restricted areas.
“We are committed to reducing incidents on our roads and the way we can do this is to work in partnership with our local schools and those who use them.
“Drivers should always drive cautiously near schools, slow down and be wary that children can be more difficult to see.
“Any concerns can be reported to us on 101.”
