Reporting unsafe driving – Online Community Police Roadwatch

Reporting unsafe driving (with a view to prosecution)
You’re going to need to be committed here. You need to lay a formal complaint (at your nearest Police station), and be prepared to take time out to go to Court.
I’ve had a crash with a motor vehicle – what should I do?
We hope you’re OK! Please note it’s REALLY important that you file a crash report with the Police so the incident gets treated seriously. If you’re injured it’s even more important – in fact it’s a legal requirement that the crash be reported as soon as practicable and certainly within 24 hours.
Here are two checklists that will help with this. The first is a SeriousCrashChecklist to help you to note all the details of your crash. This information can help you when dealing with the police and insurance companies.
The second is Incidents checklist in the event that you wish to report an accident or incident to the police. You might like to print these out and carry them with you in a backpack or seatbag for easy reference. Take photos with your mobile phone camera too.
