More than 100 motorists were stopped by police due to speeding issues in a single day on a road between Kinross and Fife.
Tayside Roads Policing Unit had reason to stop 110 drivers on the Kinross to Fife A977 road on September 25 as part of its day of action.
The increased police presence on the stretch of road came in response to numerous complaints from local residents about speeding and poor driving.
95 warnings were given about manner of driving, 14 drivers were reported for speeding offences, and one person was reported for dangerous driving.
