DOZENS of drivers have been stopped in Lochalsh and on Skye as part of a police crackdown on motoring offences.

Officers stopped more than 60 vehicles and reported 24 for road traffic offences during dedicated patrols last weekend.

Careless driving, speeding, vehicles in a dangerous condition, and motorists who had no licence were among the offences detected.

A number of warnings were also issued to motorists and advice was given in order to educate them on the importance of road safety.

Road Policing Constable Malcolm Cameron said "These proactive patrols highlight our commitment to improving road safety across the Highlands and Islands area and will hopefully reassure our communities that we are both listening and responding to their concerns.

"Through Operation Cedar we aim to reduce casualties and and improve road safety."
