More Drivers are Putting their Lives at Risk in Dorchester

Dangerous motorists in Dorchester have been targeted in a crackdown by Dorset Police.

At least 78 people were given tickets yesterday and that doesn't include drivers caught by road safety cameras.

Most were fined for speeding, talking on their mobile phone behind the wheel, or failing to wear their seatbelt.

Safety workshops were also run across the county by No Excuse Officers. Anyone caught without a seatbelt had the choice of a fine and points, or volunteer for a 30 minute safety course the same day.

Inspector Les Fry says educating people is better than just sending them away with a ticket. Click the player below to listen his comments.

 
Despite the high numbers of offenders Chief Superintendent Colin Searle says the No Excuse Campaign is working. You can listen to his comments by clicking the player below.
