Police say an undercover cycling operation which gives drivers the chance to look back at footage of their driving has been “well received”.
Thirty-three people were given warnings in relation to speeding and other road traffic offences. Police said one person was charged with a speeding offence, six with lighting offences and five for not having a valid MOT.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has implemented a new system allowing drivers to print off MOT certificates at home.
Police in the north-east stopped more than 70 cars in a routine operation.
Aberdeen City Council will carry out an internal review into the operation of six vehicles without valid MOT certificates.
If you intend to keep your car on the road, making sure that it passes its MOT is essential. In the UK, cars that are older than three years need to have an MOT annually. If it passes, great. However, if it fails, repairs must be made to ensure the vehicle is up to scratch legally.
