Police are running an operation across our region, including Avon & Somerset and Wiltshire as well as Gloucestershire, to identify people who drive inconsiderately, carelessly or recklessly, particularly around people on bikes.

The operation, which was pioneered by West Mids Police, uses non-uniformed officers riding bikes equipped with cameras. They can alert colleagues to driving they witness that falls significantly below the standard required to pass a driving test. Those drivers will be stopped and offered a choice between education at the roadside or points and a fine or, for more serious offences, notice of prosecution.
