Something to do with the BBC...can't find the page now.Thanks.(Still looking)

Surprised only twenty people per year are wiped out by these mobile phone wielding twats.Then again there is enough crap driving without these things.
The road in Guildford.I bet the driver couldn't give a fark either.
I see I'm slow with this it's been posted on a thread in chat.
Week long crackdown in the UK
It's nowhere near enough but I suppose the lack of police resources restricts the length of time that can be spent on this. It should prove to be fruitful though if GMP Traffic's experience is anything to go by: caught twice in 45 minutes.
40,000 or 22 per day caught within the last 5 years here in Northern Ireland.
It's scary that that's just the one's that have been caught. This is only the tip of the iceberg but well done to the PSNI at least for catching some of them.
Don't report it whilst driving, wait until you stop
Hertfordshire Police policy is to just send offenders on a one day course.

GMP have announced a pilot scheme to use dashcam/helmet cam footage submissions from members of the public
Local rag picked up my video today. Wasn't asked for permission or comment mind...
So isn't your name David Evans as in the article?
I saw a sign the other day saying you get 6 points now if caught. Is this true? See 100 people a day on their phones whilst driving. If I do why on earth can't the police or the CCTV that our country is full of?
I live on a road with a slight hill and a speed camera halfway down. 3 sets of lights 3/4 of a mile apart. Average speed has to be 40 MPH on the road at least. In a built up area so 30.
Bizarrely we have a dual carriage way that was 60 for years which has now been strangled and reduced to 40. Funnily enough the majority abide by this even though there is 0% of people crossing it as it isn't built up and no pavements!!
I'm a cyclist and a motorist. Never ceases to amaze me how many drivers are complete idiots racing to the next set of lights and how much effort it must take to indicate or switch on lights when conditions dictate!
A construction company pickup driver slowly pulled out of a quiet side street T-junction without looking, while reading texts on his mobile. I had to swerve to avoid him, I was so annoyed I called him a F...cking idiot at his window, he drove on undeterred. I wouldn't be surprised if he did it on purpose.
A Foxtrot India would probably be a promotion for him.
How easy it in your areas to report crap/selfish/dangerous driving?
I ask because a few months ago whilst on my way to pick up miniV, some bellend was driving literally inches from my rear mudguard.
GMP take reports of this nature via Operation Considerate. My attempt to use it to report the incident left me so infuriated that I simply gave up. The difficulty in editing a specific form in order to be filled in and sent back to them in particular had me swearing.
