SIX drivers have been detected for drug or drink driving offences in targeted operations in Inverness.
Road police officers carried out a weekend of enforcement activity as part of Operation Cedar which aims to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in the area..
Four men, aged 27, 29, 31 and 42, were detected drug driving while a further two men, aged 24 and 26, were detected drink driving.
In addition, officers made five positive drug recoveries from vehicles, one driver was reported for careless driving and two vehicles were seized for having no insurance.
Constable Iain Young of the Highland and Islands road policing unit said: "It should go without saying that driving under the influence of drink or drugs is incredibly dangerous and every detection made is disappointing.
"We are committed to reducing the number of people killed and seriously injured on the roads and will continue our efforts to deal with drink/drug drivers under #OpCedar throughout the festive period."
