Police warn drivers to light up

POLICE will be clamping down on cars with defective bulbs and lights over the rest of winter.

Insp Andy Colbourne said officers will be pro-active over the winter months after concerns were raised at a meeting of Whitby Town Council.

Coun Denis Collins said on one journey over the moors in tne dark he passed seven cars with faulty lights.

He said: “If it was me I wouldn’t even think of getting in a car but if you saw a car with a bulb out you might think it was a motorbike, go around it, think you have left enough space, hit it and it’s too late.”
