Police operation on Frosses road which has become 'magnet for dangerous driving'

Police are clamping down on the Frosses Road which they say has become a "magnet for dangerous driving".

The PSNI along with staff from the DVA and council carried out an operation in the area on Saturday night after they were aware of a large amount of cars gathering on Sunday evenings.

Officers said the area has become a "magnet for dangerous driving and anti-social driving".

Police returned to the area on Sunday night and saw the cars gathered again.

The PSNI said: "We had police in the vicinity last week and a large number of persons were spoken to. Unfortunately the message does not seem to be getting out there.

"Tonight we had cars starting to gather expecting to see, well I don't know what they expected to see but I'll hazard a guess it wasn't the police.

"We have had a number of detections for high speed on the road and advice and warning issued to a number of other persons.

"I'll imagine the talk is about how police have ruined a bit of innocent fun, however, it's not.

"I have been to my fair share of bad collisions and I'd rather not go to any more. We are there to try and stop people killing themselves or some other innocent person.

"We are there to provide reassurance to those who live in the area that we take their complaints seriously. My message is to those that insist on coming to this area, drive in a way that shows no consideration to anyone else, is that we will be there, we will deal robustly with any offences and we may just save your life."
