Highland and Islands road policing officers have been out carrying out speed checks in Muir of Ord, Evanton and on the A9 trunk road in response to concerns raised by communities.

Officers were aiming to tackle poor driver behaviour during the campaign, known as Operation Cedar, in a bid to reduce the number of people injured or killed on the roads.

Road Policing Sergeant Angus Macleod said: "Through Operation Cedar – Challenge, Educate, Detect and Reduce – we are committed to reducing the number of people injured and killed on our roads.

"We will engage with road users and aim to tackle poor driver behaviour and encourage motorists to think carefully about their speed.

"The maximum posted speed limit is not necessarily the safest speed so please think about your actions and consider the safety of others."
