Report bad driving

North Yorkshire Police’s Operation Snap encourages those who witness the anti-social use of vehicles or poor driving, to report them online, as part of their road safety campaign. Members of the public are also encouraged to upload dash cam or mobile phone footage of dangerous or anti-social driving they have witnessed.

A profile of information will be collated for the police to assess and act upon, to ensure guidance and advice can be provided to those who need it.

Community speed watch

Drawing drivers’ attention to speed limits in areas where communities say it is affecting their quality of life. Community Speed Watch also educates drivers about the effects that anti-social road use can have on local people.
