TEN drivers were caught speeding during a nighttime police operation on Bingley bypass.

All the motorists were captured driving at between 65 and 70mph in the 50mph zone last night and will be dealt with through fixed penalty notices.

Two drivers were also stopped for other offences.

The crackdown was carried out by officers from the Bradford district Operation Steerside team, in response to concerns raised within the community.

Police say the operation was the latest in a series staged across the district as part of Steerside – and more will follow.

Operation Steerside was launched in 2017 to tackle dangerous driving and it has evolved into a multi-agency partnership, also involving Bradford Council and schools and working on changing behaviours and educating young people as well as enforcement.

Inspector Craig Stothers, of West Yorkshire Police, said: “We are well aware of residents' concerns regarding dangerous and anti-social driving and speeding in the district and mounted this latest operation on the bypass due to nighttime issues there.

"All of those drivers caught by our Steerside officers are being dealt with and we want to get a clear warning out to motorists that these checks will continue, both on the bypass and elsewhere.

"I would ask residents to keep telling us about dangerous driving in their communities via 101 or our online reporting services, to make sure we are targeting these patrols where they are most needed.

"Video of dangerous driving can also be submitted to us using the force’s new online portal for submitting digital evidence at westyorkshire.police.uk/SaferRoadsSubmissions."
