Police seized one vehicle and issued 18 tickets during an operation targeting motorists flouting various driving related laws on roads around Bridgnorth.
Dozens of vehicles were stopped and checked along the A454 to Wolverhampton and the A442 to Kidderminster roads. The vehicle was taken in by police after the driver was found to have no insurance.
Tickets were issued for a number of offences ranging from drivers using hand-held phones to general vehicle defects.
Police officers, told to take a zero tolerance approach, joined forces with the DVLA and West Mercia Safety Camera Partnership to tackle drivers flouting the law.
The A454 and the A442 have both seen fatal and serious accidents in the past few years.
Sergeant Donna-Louise Hankin lead officers in the multi-agency operation.
The operation also involved specialist traffic officers from West Mercia’s Force Operations Support Team.
Sergeant Rankin said: “A number of vehicles were stop checked during the course of the day.
“One vehicle was seized and 18 tickets were issued for various driving offences, including using a hand-held mobile phone and vehicle defects.
“Both these roads are busy, national speed limit roads and have been the location of several fatal collisions over the last few years.
“Our operation took a zero tolerance approach to enforcing road traffic offences, while also educating drivers.
“Careless driving can cause serious collisions and we hope the message got across that by committing offences.
“Not only are drivers breaking the law but they are also putting themselves and other road users at risk,” she added.
