To anonymously report dangerous or bad driving vist the DVLA website.
The aim of the new website, called ‘RoadDriver’, is to help reduce road accidents through driver monitoring, awareness and education schemes. The website, produced by RoadDriver Ltd, also offers safety tips and advice for drivers.
People can use the site to check if any reports have been filed against a vehicle, or alternatively they can file a report themselves. RoadDrivers says that the purpose of the licence plate reporting service is to bring to a driver’s attention their poor driving behaviour and attitude as witnessed by fellow drivers.
According to the website, research shows if drivers are aware that their thoughtless or dangerous driving habits could be reported, they make significant efforts to improve their driving.
RoadDriver adds that the reporting service is not a substitute for the police, and if a road traffic offence has been committed this should be reported to the police.
