Police are continuing a drive to target unsafe and illegal drivers in South Ribble.
Officers were present in and around Leyland town centre for several hours this week in a clampdown on bad motorists.
Offences being targeted included speeding, driving without a seatbelt and using a mobile phone whilst behind the wheel.
Forty drivers were issued with penalty points, a fine or, in some circumstances, the option of an educational course dependent on the severity of the offence and their driving history.
South Ribble Insp Steve Evans said: “This type of police work is carried out throughout Lancashire and we know that the majority of South Ribble’s drivers are both capable and responsible.
“However, it only takes one ignorant road user to ruin a life or cause a tragedy and this is why we continue to push home the message of safe road use whether light, night, rain or sun.”
Sgt Phil Elsden, of the constabulary’s road policing unit, added: “These planed operations are proven to save lives and prevent injuries as statistics have shown over the last several years.
“I would also like to inform the public that money we receive from levied fines is put straight back into promoting and advising people on safe driving as part of preventative tactics.”
To report offences, call Lancashire Police on 101.
