SCOTS cops are cracking down on reckless drivers after catching a woman eating a bowl of cereal at the wheel. 

They caught the 23-year-old who was driving on the M90 Queensferry Crossing, and she was given a £100 fine and three points on her licence. 

An HGV driver was fined £200 and had six points put on his licence after he was seen driving with both hands on his mobile phone and was using his forearms to drive on the Edinburgh City bypass.

Officers are taking to the roads in an unmarked HGV where road policing officer Tom Aitken says they can gain a "good view of drivers and what they are doing". 

The vehicle, used as part of Operation Tramline, has already seen drivers reported for 85 offences since late April.

A total of 47 drivers were caught using their phones behind the wheel. 

Mr Aitken said: “Reducing the number of road casualties is a priority for Police Scotland and we are always looking at ways to enhance our ability to investigate road traffic offences.

“As well as working closely with partners to help make roads safer for all road users, we regularly use footage from dashcams, headcams and CCTV to investigate road traffic offences.

“Most people know the effect alcohol and drugs can have on driving, but the small things can be overlooked.

“It is just not smart eating as you are driving, it is downright dangerous. The same goes for using any mobile device and reading.

“Acting like this means you are distracted and therefore not in proper control of your vehicle. A split-second lapse in concentration could result in a crash.

“Not wearing a seatbelt is life-threatening. If you are not fully secure then the consequences if you are involved in a crash could be deadly.

“Road policing officers, unfortunately, see the devastation this causes and we urge drivers to be responsible and make sure they are safe.

“Think of the effects a crash could have on your loved ones.

“The HGV enables officers to have a good view of drivers and what they are doing. It is another tool we are using to make Scotland’s roads safer.”
