Longridge police are cracking down on dangerous driving in the town after a surge in the number of complaints.

The police are running the week-long campaign – called Operation Speed Dial – with both uniformed and plain clothed officers out and about in Longridge after 19 reports in May and June of anti-social driving.

The problems have also been raised by the local community at a number of the recent PACT (police and commmunities together) meetings. These include incidents of speeding, tailgating, mobile phone use, inconsiderate driving and drink driving.
