More than 100 motorists have been issued with warnings after being caught driving through pedestrianised zones in Dundee city centre.
Officers from the Dundee City Centre Policing Team were out in force at the no-car zones in Commercial Street and Panmure Street on Monday afternoon.
A total of 104 cars were pulled over in the four-hour period between 1pm and 5pm.
All drivers were issued with Antisocial Behaviour warnings and could risk having their vehicles seized if caught “further endangering pedestrians by re-offending over the next 12 months”.
Amongst those caught was one driver sought on a warrant and was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon. One driver was charged with driving with no license.
A statement from Police Scotland said they will continue to crack down on illegal driving in the city centre.
A spokesman added: “A number of those stopped told officers that they took these ‘short cuts’ daily, but would not do this anymore. Also, a number of people were following sat navs, rather than paying attention to signage.
“If anyone is in any doubt – signage is correct and should be followed. ‘I didn’t see the sign’ is no excuse – if you’re driving with proper care and attention, you’ll see them.
“Antisocial Behaviour warnings are exactly that – warnings. No fines or fees are incurred by the recipients unless they commit another relevant offence in the following 12 months.
“We sincerely hope that those drivers issued with these warnings yesterday heed them fully.”
