THESE are the shocking videos that helped police identify careless drivers.

The roads unit at Hampshire Constabulary posted this montage of footage that was submitted by members of the public.

Formal action has been taken on the drivers of each of the vehicles.

Conor Curtis from the Summary Justice Unit of the force told the Echo: “We are really grateful to members of the public who assist us in policing our roads by submitting footage through the Hants SNAP scheme. The use of dashcam and headcam devices are becoming increasingly useful in helping us to identify and address poor driving, often before something more serious occurs.

"All of the drivers shown in these videos unnecessarily put other road users at risk as a direct result of their actions. Thanks to those who reported them, each driver has been contacted by police and dealt with by way of a fixed penalty or, if eligible, by completing a driver education course as an alternative."

Mr Curtis added: “Each year there are around 1,000 road traffic collisions that result in fatal or serious injury in Hampshire, often as a result of poor driver behaviour.

“This is preventable, as is the devastating impact collisions can have on people’s lives. The public have really supported us by submitting their footage and I want to thank them for their role in helping us to make our roads safer for everyone.”
