West Yorkshire Police is urging Huddersfield residents to help them tackle anti-social and dangerous driving.
Police are encouraging residents who have filmed dangerous or anti-social driving to send footage to West Yorkshire Police.
They have a new online portal to equip the public in helping them tackle this problem.
Recently, officers have particularly focused on the Lindley area. Police have undertaken speed gun deployments and have patrolled with marked cars to deter offending and pulling over any anti-social drivers.
It is part of a wider effort to improve Huddersfield’s road safety. Other actions include vehicle safety checks in the Bradley and Fixby areas.
Inspector Graham Dyson of the Huddersfield NPT, said, “We have a number of locations across the area where we receive numerous reports of loud cars, speeding and general ASB driving.
“We are therefore responding to this information as part of our ‘You said – We Did’ deployments.
“Making the roads safer is always a key priority and we will continue to target those areas where people believe they can drive outside of the law.
“I would also encourage anyone who captures any incident of ASB driving on Dash Cam to submit this to Police via our website so that it can be investigated.”
