A crackdown on motorists with fault headlights as been carried out in the North-east.
Officers in the Fraserburgh area carried out the operation earlier this week in response to concerns raised by local residents.
In total 13 vehicles were stopped and were either issued a vehicle rectification ticket or warned over their driving.
Five people were also detained under the Misuse of Drugs act, however, none were found to be under the influence while driving.
Constable Jonathon Pinder said: “Road safety is a priority for Police Scotland and we will listen to and act upon the concerns of our communities.
“Despite this initiative taking place during the hours of darkness in which the fewest amount of vehicles are on the roads several vehicles were stopped and defects identified.
“Due to the proactive nature of this initiative five persons were also detained under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, however none were found to be under the influence whilst behind the wheel of their car.
“I would encourage anyone with concerns to report these to the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
