PC Stacy Morrison from Formartine Community Policing Team has been carrying out speed checks with the Primary Schools at Cultercullen and Fyvie this week.

As part of her visit the children have been seeing how the laser equipment works and asking drivers how they feel about speeding past their schools.

This falls under Operation Cedar which tackles speeding and antisocial driving across the north-east with a view in reducing casualties on our roads.

Speed checks carried out by the team have also taken place at several locations in an effort to tackle the issue.

In Oldmeldrum four drivers were warned and educated about speeding and the risk this poses in our towns and villages.

Checks on Hospital Road in Ellon were repeated once again due to the ongoing complaints of drivers speeding there.

No drivers were charged this time but two were warned, officers also stopped a car on A90 near Newburgh which had aroused suspicions.

The driver was charged with having no insurance and the car seized.

The owner, who was traced nearby was charged with allowing the car to be used with valid insurance and both were reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
