As part of Operation Snap, members of the public can report and submit digital footage showing potential traffic offences via a secure online form.
This can range from driving dangerously or carelessly to 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.
Please note; issues with number plates, windscreens and minor traffic offences are unable to be dealt with via Op Snap and general parking complaints should be raised with the relevant local authority. Notification of untaxed vehicles can be reported directly to DVLA, reports of no MOT or no insurance should be logged to 101, not via the Op Snap portal.
Your submission will be sent to West Mercia Police where the evidence will be reviewed by one of our road traffic police officers.
One statement is required for each submission/offending vehicle. We are unable to process multiple offences sent as one submission.
West Mercia Police will strive to update each submitter regarding the outcome of their allegation. All submissions are dealt with pro-actively to help reduce risk taking and poor driving on our counties roads.
Any footage submitted through the portal can be used by us to help educate other road users and to advise on case results.
Please note – if you operate a recording device in a public place, you may have obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is in your interest to familiarise yourself, and comply with, any such obligations as apply to you. If you are in any doubt as to your obligations, please obtain independent legal advice to ensure you do not put yourself at risk of prosecution. By submitting footage you acknowledge you have read and understood this before proceeding.
There is an app, “Speedcam Anywhere 2” that can be downloaded to use. The content is then submitted to Operation Snap.
https://speedcamanywhere.com/. The app charges £14.99 for 100 recordings which can then be passed across to the police.
(Please take note of the GDPR alert highlighted above)
