MORE than 100 vehicles were stopped and checked by police during a road safety operation in west Essex.

Officers from the Essex Police Casualty Reduction Section carried out Operation Nash at Epping and Hastingwood on Wednesday October 21.

It was a follow-up to a larger scale Operation Nash across west Essex on October 7, and was part of Essex County Council’s No Excuse campaign to reduce motoring offences.

Offenders were identified by officers patrolling in cars or on motorcycles or through Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology and vehicles were escorted to check sites at the M11 interchange at Hastingwood, and at Lindsey Street, Epping.

Four drivers had their vehicles seized after they were found to have no insurance and 19 had no MOT.

A total of 35 drivers were stopped for using a mobile telephone and 31 people were seen driving without using seatbelts. Two drivers were stopped for using a mobile phone while driving and also not wearing a seat belt.

The majority of offenders were referred to a national educational course instead of receiving a fixed penalty notice.

Four people were found to have invalid driving licences and five other motoring offences were dealt with.
