FIFTEEN vehicles were seized in Keighley last month as part of Operation Steerside.

Thirteen of the seizures related to no insurance, and two were for anti-social driving.

July also saw 100 motorists dealt with for not wearing a seatbelt, 65 for speeding and eight for using a hand-held mobile phone while driving.

West Yorkshire Police launched Operation Steerside, to crack down on law-flouting motorists, in 2016.

It initially focused on enforcement against the so-called ‘fatal four’ – speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, drink and drug driving and using a mobile phone at the wheel – but its area of work has expanded.

Across the Bradford district, Operation Steerside recently achieved a milestone – the 1,000th vehicle seized.

Campaign activities in Keighley are part-funded by the town council.
