Over 300 speeders were caught during  a 24-hour Road Safety Operation across the Dyfed Powys Police Force area.

The force has announced that 332 cases of excessive speed were among the offences identified by GoSafe, Dyfed-Powys Police and Community Speed Watch schemes across Powys, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire during Project Edward last week.

The aim of Project Edward was to drive a lasting reduction in road deaths by encouraging all road users to reflect on their behaviour and attitude.

Sgt. Ian Price, Dyfed-Powys Police GoSafe Regional Coordinator, said: “GoSafe Cymru led the campaign, supported by Dyfed-Powys Police. Despite receiving 11 reports of road traffic collisions across the force, thankfully none resulted in life changing or life-threatening injuries, or fatalities.”

The results of action across the force:

•             332 excessive speed offences;

•             3 arrests for drug driving;

•             1 arrest for driving while disqualified;

•             24 mobile phone offences;

•             32 seat belt offences;

•             18 Construction and Use offences; and

•             31 vehicles seized for no insurance/no tax/no driving licence.
