POLICE Scotland said it was “regrettable” that 3,239 drivers had been caught breaking the law in the new national force’s first motoring crackdown.

A total of 2,027 drivers across Scotland were caught speeding during the four-day campaign this week with other offences including 12 of dangerous driving and 57 of careless driving.

The force also said it was “frustrating” so many motorists had broken the speed limit despite the high visibility of speed ­camera vans, which recorded 700 offences.

Incidents included a motorcyclist caught doing more than 100mph and several drivers caught doing twice the speed limit outside schools.
