Pedestrian In Collision With A BMW On The Avenue On Friday Night
Road Safety Operation In Purbeck
Special Constables from Purbeck section carried out a road safety operation on Sunday, 1 April 2012, as part of a campaign to reduce the number of road casualties in Dorset.
Staff from the Special Constabulary focused on the Purbeck Safer Neighbourhood Area, to raise the profile of road safety.
The operation took place in and around the main towns within the Purbeck Section – Upton, Wareham and Swanage.
Officers targeted motorists who were putting themselves and others at risk by drink driving, not wearing a seatbelt, using a mobile phone while driving or exceeding the speed limit.
The operation resulted in a number of offences being identified, and in total 34 Fixed Penalty Notices being issued to drivers breaching traffic laws in the area.
Chris Brolan, Road Policing Special Constable, said: “This operation was delivered as a direct result of concerns from the local community.
“The officers deployed were directed to areas highlighted by communities through their Safer Neighbourhood Teams with the intention of targeting motoring offences.
“The results speak for themselves. I am very pleased that local volunteers from the Special Constabulary could make such a contribution to local Road Safety and our communities.”

Officers say many of those were after people didn't secure their car properly.

Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
