SNAP – As part of Operation Snap, members of the public can report and submit (via a secure online Link – https://www.nextbase.com/en-gb/national-dash-cam-safety-portal/ ) digital footage showing potential traffic offences. 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. Your submission will be sent to Warwickshire Police where the evidence will be reviewed by one of our road traffic police officers. Due to the large volume of submissions received each week, we are unable to update each submitter regarding the outcome of their allegation. However, 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. For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions section or email OpSnap@warwickshire.pnn.police.uk
