A RECORD number of video clips showing apparent poor driving was submitted to Essex Police last month.

The police, alongside the Safer Essex Roads Partnership, have been running their Extra Eyes campaign since late last year which encourages motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to submit mobile phone or dash cam footage when they witness dangerous behaviour on the roads.

After reviewing the footage, Essex Police may contact the person caught on camera to explain the consequences of their actions, offer them a driver retraining course or even face prosecution with the video used as evidence.

In June there were 289 videos submitted - more than ever before in a single month - and the police took action in 65 cases.

In 46 cases, police weren't able to take things further because no registration number was included in the video.
