The NPT team have noticed a significant increase in Anti-social driving in all areas of Yeovil. This has lead to an operation being conducted across the whole of Yeovil where numerous drivers were pulled over and stop checked. Working in conjunction with the special constabulary we focused on the east Yeovil areas of Lyde road, St Michaels Avenue and Milford dip.
This resulted in an arrest for drug driving in the East Yeovil area.
Officers will be giving words of advice to drivers around there conduct and will take enforcement action when necessary.
