"A split second of inattention or poor driving can change lives forever. Everyone using the roads has a personal responsibility to keep themselves safe and not put others at risk.

"We will not tolerate the roads to be used as race tracks, and although we cannot be everywhere, we could be anywhere, so those intent on driving dangerously can assume we won’t be far away.

"We will use all of our available powers – including the issuing of Section 59 warnings, meaning if anybody receives two of these in a 12 month period their vehicle will be seized."
