Op Snap expansion continues in South West


More than 6,000 videos were submitted to Devon & Cornwall Police via Op Snap throughout 2023, making it the busiest year in the operation’s history. Op Snap, which was set up in the region in 2019, allows members of the public to submit video evidence of driving offences through an online portal.

Footage can be submitted from numerous sources, whether it’s a dashcam, helmet camera, mobile phone or even a video doorbell. Since 2019, Devon & Cornwall Police has taken action against almost 10,000 motorists through Op Snap – all thanks to vigilant members of the public. To mark the occasion, road safety partnership Vision Zero South West has released a selection of video clips to highlight the variety of offences which can be dealt with via Op Snap. The footage features dangerous overtaking manoeuvres, near misses, cars giving insufficient space for cyclists and even a driver using a mobile phone – captured by a passing passenger on their own phone. Locations range from busy dual carriageways and A-roads, to city centres and narrow rural routes.
