North-east police have charged two drivers as part of a crackdown on speeding.
High-visibility patrols were carried out in Stonehaven and Portlethen today and yesterday.
The operation centred on a number of high-risk locations in Kincardine and Mearns, including near primary schools where temporary 20mph limits apply.
Eighteen motorists were stopped and given advice about their speed, while two were charged and offered fixed-penalty notices by officers, consisting of a £100 fine and three points on their driving licence.
Officers described the fact motorists are continuing to speed in vulnerable areas as “disappointing” and vowed to continue their efforts.
Constable Alex Forsyth said: “It is disappointing that drivers continue to fail to comply with speed limits around schools.
“The temporary speed limit is there to keep children safe travelling to and from school and we will continue to carry out enforcement at schools in the Kincardine and Mearns area.”
