PATROLS led by Dingwall police on a major route in the Highlands today will result in several reports and also prompted almost 20 warnings to drivers.

Road policing officers from Dingwall were joined by colleagues from Elgin in the swoop on the A96 today.

The multi-agency operation is "aimed at influencing driver and road user behaviour for the better", while detecting and deterring all types of criminality on the roads.

Sergeant Gus Murray from Dingwall Road Policing Unit said: "Road policing officers from Elgin and Dingwall stopped and checked 69 vehicles on the A96 today.

"Of these, two drivers are to be reported for driving without insurance, one for speeding, one for having two tyres below the legal limit and one for failing to obey a red light.

"Nineteen other drivers were also warned for various other offences.

"Police Scotland is committed to influencing road user behavior and reducing the numbers of casualties on the roads."
