A75 Policing

DUMFRIES and Galloway police have responded to claims that they adopt "Gestapo-like" tactics against users of the A75 Euro-route.

Chief Superintendent Bob Ovens, the Force head of operations told the 'Free Press" this week:

"I would suggest that anyone who expresses a wish to see a reduction in police activity in this field need only speak to someone who has faced the reality of a collision.

"When they appreciate the impact which injury or the loss of a friend or family member can have on individuals or family, they will perhaps better understand our determination to police our roads effectively".

Dunragit firm Aprilia claim they will have to consider moving their operation elsewhere - with the loss of 40 jobs - because of what they claim is over-conscientious policing of the road.
