POLICE stopped more than 200 motorists during an operation to find dangerous vehicles.
Elland officers stopped 210 vehicles at the bottom of Salterhebble Hill and a further 70 vehicles at Queens Road and Elland Wood Bottom.
They were checking for bald tyres, cracked windscreens, incorrect registration plates and illegal vehicle documentation.
During the operation, a vehicle was stopped which was carrying a young child not secured in a child seat.
The driver was given the choice of accepting a fixed penalty fine or buying an appropriate child safety seat – he chose the latter.
HM Customs also carried out fuel dip sampling tests in order to detect the improper use of red diesel.
Police also discovered a quantity of cannabis.
Sgt Mick Richmond, leading the operation, said they would carry out further operations in Calderdale’s Lower Valley in the future.
