West Fife: Police catch drivers using mobile phones on film

Fife POLICE filmed drivers using their mobile phones.

As part of the Operation Tramline initiative, officers in Fife captured a total of 15 offenses on camera yesterday, eight of which were motorists using mobile phones while driving.

Other offenses filmed yesterday were driving without a seatbelt and reckless driving.

Operation Tramline is an initiative that allows police to drive alongside cars in heavy-duty vehicles. This gives them an advantageous height that allows them to film dangerous driving behavior.

It was hoped that publicity about this new program would have deterred reckless behavior on the road, but that did not stop these drivers on this occasion.

Road Policing Scotland continues to raise awareness of Operation Tramline on its Twitter page, sharing yesterday’s breaches in a tweet with the hashtag #OpTramline.
