Roads and Vehicle Safety

Cheshire Police work hard to prevent accidents and keep the roads of Cheshire safe by working with communities to educate road users on road and vehicle safety.

The Fatal 5

Statistics show that more people are dying as a result of careless driving than any other factor.

More than twice the number of people died on Cheshire's roads in 2018 compared the previous year – and the majority of those deaths could have been avoided.

The Fatal 5 are:

  • Careless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving distracted while using a mobile phone (technology)
  • Drink/drug driving
  • Not wearing a seatbelt

Submit Dashcam Footage

With more motorists using dashcams, mobile phones being used to capture drivers committing offences, and increasing numbers of cyclists/horse riders wearing helmet cams, there are more people than ever capturing evidence of people committing traffic offences.

As a result of this, Cheshire Police have been keen to develop a process in response to the increased submission of video and photographic evidence of incidents witnessed by its communities on our roads.

Find out how you can submit your footage to Cheshire Police.
