How to Report Traffic Incidents to the Cheshire Police

Helmet CameraThe Chester Cycling Campaign has been in discussion with Cheshire Police regarding the use of cycling camera footage and the legal status of such footage when drivers are caught committing traffic offences. Prompt and firm action against drivers committing offences which put cyclists and other vulnerable road users at risk is an important element of making our roads safer.

Road traffic incidents can be reported to the Cheshire Police through their simple online reporting tool. Traffic incidents include road traffic collisions, close passes and potential road traffic offences.

To use the tool, you will need the exact location of the incident as well as any camera footage or photographic evidence. Once you start the tool, you will be guided through the process with appropriate advice offered as you complete the various sections.

Please report any incidents that you witness to help us to improve road conditions for cyclists by changing driver behaviour.

  1. I’ve submitted camera footage to Cheshire Police of cars and lorries clipping me while riding and every time they’ve said there’s nothing they can do about it.

    Meanwhile, I understand they have been out in the city centre again today fining cyclists trying to get from the Forum to the cycle lane on Northgate Street yet turning a blind eye to the vans blocking the cycle lane, and the convoys of vehicles rat running along Northgate Street and past the police station!

  2. BLO*DY BRILLIANT. A real step forward in road and cycle safety. Motorists must learn their license is to drive not kill. Zero tolerance on the 5 foot rule and other bad driving with education/fines/points is essential for a few weeks to get the message across. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL POLICE FORCES.
