A NEW online portal will allow motorists to link the drivers to police forces by directly sending dash cam footage to the authorities.
NEXTBASE has created the National Dash Cam Safety Portal to allow drivers in the UK and Wales to submit their videos of dangerous or hazardous driving directly to Police.
WHAT IS THE NDSP?
The National Dash Cam Safety Portal (NDSP) is a response to the ever increasing submissions of video and photographic evidence from members of the public in relation to witnessed driving offences. It has been setup with the aim of reducing road accidents and making the UK’s roads safer.
WHAT DOES THE NDSP CATER FOR?
NDSP caters for a broad range of road incidents including dangerous driving, using a mobile phone, driving without due care and attention, careless driving, overtaking on solid white lines, not in proper control, traffic light contravention or any other road traffic offence provided it is clearly made out in the submitted media.
IF THE NUMBER PLATE IS ILLEGIBLE IN THE VIDEO CAN IT BE ENHANCED?
It will not be possible to enhance if the original recording has failed to capture the number.
HOW DO I REPORT AN INCIDENT?
Incidents can be reported via the NDSP or directly to the Force where the incident occurred.
WILL THE POLICE SEIZE THE DEVICE ON WHICH THE INCIDENT WAS RECORDED?
No. All that is required is a copy of the original file in unedited, uncompressed format.
