Police use lorry cab to detect driving offences

More than 100 vehicles were stopped during a week-long operation in which police used an unmarked HGV cab to spot driving offences on the A1 near Grantham.

Lincolnshire Police said 124 vehicles were stopped during the week of action in May and 141 offences were “dealt with”.

They included 51 people not wearing seatbelts, 23 drivers using mobile phones and one case of drink and drug driving.

Insp Jason Baxter from Lincolnshire Police said: “It’s not about catching people out, it’s just another tactic we will use to try to identify offences.”
