GoSafe regularly receives a number of videos and photographs of people driving dangerously, using a mobile phone, jumping red lights and many other forms of unsafe driving. Here’s some examples of submissions we've received and the action that we’ve taken against irresponsible drivers.
North Wales Police – Driving without Due Care & Attention
Footage was provided by a member of the public showing the driver of a vehicle travelling at speed and undertaking the witness who was travelling in lane 2 of the A55 dual carriageway. The offending vehicle then forces its way into lane 2 as it overtakes a vehicle in lane 1, forcing the vehicle already in lane 2 to brake sharply. Offender then immediately attempts to undertake another vehicle that was in lane 2 but was actually moving back into lane 1. The driver’s actions caused numerous vehicles to brake harshly, and a collision was narrowly avoided. The driver was identified, however they failed to comply with the Conditional Offer of a Fixed Penalty.
The matter was sent to Court where the driver pleaded guilty to driving without due care/attention and was issued with fines/costs totalling £706 and 6 penalty points.
