Road Safety Messages driven home to motorists and children in Porthcawl

It was ‘all go’ for police officers during Road Safety Week (Monday, November 23 to Friday, November 26) in Porthcawl recently.
A busy week made up of enforcement and awareness raising activities ensured road safety messages were driven home to people across the town.

During a four day operation, 50 vehicles were stopped by police and 20 fixed penalty notices were issued for offences including using a mobile phone and for not wearing a seatbelt.

A further 30 drivers were stopped and warned in relation to other motoring offences.

Officers also visited Porthcawl schools including Nottage and West Park Primary School to spread the road safety message.

Pupils were reminded of the importance of wearing a seat belt and how to safely ride a bike on the roads.

Children got hands on police experience as they tried on police uniforms and got behind the wheel of a traffic car and climbed into the back of a prisoner transport vehicle.

Ps Jason Jenkins, said: ” This was a great road safety operation which involved officers from Porthcawl’s neighbourhood policing team and roads policing officers. This road safety week has kicked-off a programme of road safety activities which will continue into the New Year. I’d like to thank my colleagues in the roads policing unit for all their help.”
