'Visible police presence' for car cruise at Inverness retail park, says force

By Philip Murray

A PLANNED car cruise at an Inverness retail park is likely to cause some traffic congestion this weekend, police have warned.

Officers said they are aware of the event, which is expected to be held at Inverness Retail Park on Eastfield Way during Saturday evening.

And they added that there will be "a visible police presence" in the area to ensure road safety and to provide reassurance to the public.

Sergeant Alasdair Mackay, from the road policing unit, said: “The majority of people attending this event are law-abiding motoring enthusiasts. We would like to take this opportunity to remind those attending to ensure their vehicles are road-worthy and to be considerate to other members of the public in the area.

“We all have a responsibility to use the road network safely and anyone participating in anti-social behaviour such as wheel-spinning and revving or other offences such as speeding, using mobile phones while driving and driving under the influence will be dealt with accordingly. Drivers are reminded that they could face court action or have their vehicle seized.

“We want everyone to enjoy the event responsibly and safely whilst allowing the community to go about their business unhindered.”
