In a recent operation to reduce speed on the road, police in Banbridge conducted a number of checks on Wednesday, October 1 resulting in 42 tickets being issued.

six £60 tickets issued and Scarva Road, Banbridge had two £30 tickets issued.

The campaign will run over the next three weeks and the message from police in E District is ‘help us reduce injury and death on our roads’.

E District Operations Superintendent, Davy Moore explained: “There has been a worrying increase in the number of people killed on our roads, including 18 people killed on the roads in E District alone this year to date.

“This weekend alone across E District seven people were detected driving with excess alcohol. It is unbelievable that people continue to take risks like this on the road.”
