HAMPSHIRE police are encouraging cyclists to hand in footage of drivers making dangerous passes.

Officers are asking anyone who may have been involved in or witnessed an incident where a vehicle has made a close pass on a cyclist as part of a new campaign Hants SNAP.

Hants SNAP is a police initiative aimed at protecting vulnerable road users from harm.

Police are accepting personal video evidence submissions from members of the public who have witnessed alleged road traffic offences involving vulnerable road users, predominantly cyclists.

Officers will then investigate offences of careless and inconsiderate driving, as defined by section three of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

A trained decision maker will assess the footage and determine if any offences have been committed.

Where action is proportionate and there is sufficient evidence to successfully prosecute the case at court, the incident will most likely be dealt with via the fixed penalty system.

Footage can be submitted at: secureform.egress.com/hampshirepolice.
