 New Initiative for Reporting Traffic Offences

From 1st July 2018 Warwickshire Police will be running a new initiative. This will allow members of the public to submit digital footage from dashcams showing potential traffic offences. This can range from driving dangerously or carelessly, overtaking on solid white lines, using a mobile phone while driving, ignoring traffic lights or dangerous driving around other road users, such as horse riders and cyclists.

Your submission will be sent to Warwickshire Police where the evidence will be reviewed by one of their road traffic officers, who will enforce against any offences committed

Footage can be submitted by using this link.
