Menai Bridge drivers pass roadside eyeside tests

North Wales Police

Sixty motorists travelling through Menai Bridge put their eyesight to the test as part of a police operation.

Traffic officers tested drivers between the ages of 25 and 95 on Tuesday in a joint operation with Anglesey Council’s road safety department.

They found every motorist passed the test and had no problems with uncorrected eyesight. The drivers aged 65 and over were also offered a free assessment from the council.

PC Meurig Jones from the Roads Policing Unit said: ”It was pleasing to see that several drivers took up the option of participating in the courses to refresh their driving skills. We would like to remind all drivers of the need to ensure that their eyesight is sufficient to pass the minimum DVLA requirements.”
