Five drivers were stopped for passing too closely to an unmarked police cyclist on Saturday.

Officers spoke to motorists during the latest Operation Close Pass on the B9006 Inverness to Sunnyside road.

Road Policing Constable Paul Whitehead said: “The operation provides us with a good opportunity to speak to road users to highlight our respective responsibilities. We were very pleased with the large majority of vehicles which were giving the cyclists plenty of room.

“All road users should be able to travel safely and we hope that activity like Operation Close Pass will encourage everyone on the roads to consider how their behaviour could change for the better.”
