Tailgaters and inconsiderate drivers targeted under police crackdown
TAILGATERS, impatient drivers who undertake or overtake in dangerous circumstances, will also be targeted under a new police crackdown.
Codenamed Operation Safeway, the crackdown will see bullying drivers who put innocent lives at risk targeted.
The operation comes amid growing public concern about poor driving standards that have led to fears for the safety of all road users.
Police will be using cars and motorbikes fitted with video cameras to ensure that offenders are dealt with quickly and efficiently without officers spending time in court.
