Police have revealed the true impact of Operation Snap on Bradford and West Yorkshire’s roads.

West Yorkshire Police received 622 pieces of dashcam and phone footage showcasing potential driving offences across the region in June.

The force launched the Safer Roads Media Submissions Portal in 2020, allowing the public to notify police about potential offenders and bring about change.

In June, police took action against the driver in 68 per cent of cases while 315 motorists were offered educational courses.

96 motorists were given a conditional offer of a fixed penalty notice and 13 people are due to appear in court.

The submitters included 295 drivers, 17 passengers, one motorcyclist, 264 cyclists, 12 horse riders and 22 pedestrians.

Leeds had the highest number of submissions at 240 in Leeds, followed by Bradford with 157 submissions.

There were 81 submissions in Kirklees, 70 in Wakefield and 60 in Calderdale.

There were also 14 where the location was not known.

Rachel Wainwright, Digital Submissions and Investigations Team Manager, said: “I hope this shows that we are acting on people’s submissions of dashcam and phone footage and that it does result in motorists being prosecuted for their offences.”
