Operation Snap campaign extended across Wales
A campaign encouraging members of the public to report traffic offences is now being run across Wales.
First launched in October 2016 by the North Wales Police and the Road Casualty Reduction Partnership, the scheme was expanded to South Wales Police last summer and is now being run by all four Welsh police forces in conjunction with GoSafe (the Wales Road Safety Casualty Reduction Partnership).
The campaign enables members of the public to submit footage and images showing traffic offences being committed – from driving dangerously or carelessly to contravening solid white lines, using a mobile phone while driving or ignoring traffic lights.
Inspector Steve Davies who delivered Operation Snap on behalf of South Wales Police, said, “The aim of this initiative is to change driver behaviour and their mind-set behind the wheel. We want drivers to ask themselves two questions: firstly, am I being recorded? and secondly, do I really want to take that chance?”
