Police are to carry out a day of action in Dundee city centre in a bid to stop motorists driving in pedestrianised zones.
Officers from the Dundee City Centre Policing Team will be out in force today with warnings issued to drivers flouted the rules.
City Centre Sergeant Martin Jenkins said the action has come about over reports of “nuisance” drivers who could end up seeing their vehicles being seized.
Sgt Jenkins said: “We will be issuing warning notices under the Antisocial Behaviour (Scotland) Act 2004 which remain live for a period of one year.
“The warning is applied to both the driver and their vehicle and any subsequent relevant offence within the one year period by that driver or that vehicle (with a different driver) will result in the vehicle immediately being seized in order to remove the danger from the roads.
“We are aware of the repeated offending of non-exempt motor vehicles driving through the restricted zones in the City Centre and these warnings allow us to deal more immediately and effectively with the nuisance and distress caused by those who misuse their vehicles, resulting in increased danger to pedestrians and in particular to vulnerable people.
“Following the Day of Action routine Police enforcement will continue to be carried out within the Pedestrian Zones with Antisocial Behaviour warnings issued.”
