Police have called the North Coast 500 a racetrack.
Norther Constabulary have issued a warning to driver's on the NC500 ahead of the 2020 summer rush by tourists to drive the North Coast 500. Last year 70 drivers received warnings and 40 were dealt with by way of fixed penalties at the scene or will be reported to the procurator fiscal for prosecution.
Northern Constabulary said offences included dangerous driving and speeding, other motorists were also detected on the route driving carelessly, failing to wear a seatbelt & using a mobile phone while driving. The North Coast 500 is attracting more and more tourists every year, most of these drivers are not from the local area and are not used to driving on the left or on single track roads.
