    People in London can report mobile-phone-using drivers on the following form:

    http://www.met.police.uk/roadsafelondon/

    The form takes about 5 mins to fill in, and can be sent anonymously. It is also relevant for other gross traffic offences. I have sent in several forms and correspondence with the admin officers shows that they are very keen indeed to get details of "those who consider themselves above the law" in their words. There is even a drop-down choice for "cycling near-misses". We should support this effort to change the enforcement environment in favour of the general good.

    If people are aware of other schemes around the country, perhaps they could also post details?

    Admin, could we have a sticky?

    Cheers

    Shame I didn't get the Plate number of the Coach Driver turning in to Jamaica Road from Tower Bridge, it was shocking to see a "Professional" driver on the phone whil turning the steering wheel.

    Good cycle cam evidence - looks like the Met site might have some teeth after all.

    When I get a chance, I'll use it...

    She can't get to youtube. So I am just sending her a snapshot for evidence.

    Or upload the clip somewhere she can download it from? I have webspace that you're welcome to put it on. I'll need some sort of access to the clip though.
