Police patrol city’s roads

Have your say

MEMBERS of Sheffield’s roads policing team carried out extra patrols of Woodhouse and Mosborough last month in a bid to make residents feel safer on the roads.

They issued five motorists with fixed penalty notices for speeding and reported another four on summons to court.

Officers also seized seven vehicles for not having insurance and five motorists were given 14 days to repair defects found with their cars.

Seven drivers were issued with fixed penalty notices for not wearing seatbelts and four were caught using their phones behind the wheel.

Police arrested three motorists on suspicion of drink driving and two were found driving without an MOT or using their cars in an anti-social way.

A spokesman for the Woodhouse and Mosborough Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Our colleagues in the Road Policing Group will continue to work in and around our Safer Neighbourhood Area in response to local concerns to make the community safer.”
