DOZENS of drivers face fines and penalty points on their licence following a one-day police crackdown.
Motorists were clocked going too fast on various roads in and around Paisley.
They were hit with a £60 fine and three penalty points on their licence.
Drivers and passengers caught not wearing a seatbelt were given a £40 fixed penalty.
A few motorists were also spotted talking on their mobile phone while behind the wheel.
That’s a £60 fine and three penalty points.
The day of action was part of the Force’s year-round commitment to reduce the number of people killed or injured on the roads.
Chief Superintendent Charlie Common told On The Beat: “It is regrettable that I am again highlighting to motorists that they are showing a complete disregard for their own safety and that of other road users.
“It is particularly worrying that these offences were committed on a day when travelling conditions were at times extremely hazardous due to the heavy rainfall.”
Throughout the Strathclyde Force during the purge 96 drivers face speeding charges and more than 140 accused of not wearing a seatbelt in the car.
