Adam Pipe, Head of Roads Policing, said: “Thank you to those members of the public who drive considerately and help keep our roads safe for all road users (especially those most vulnerable; cyclists, horse riders and motorcyclists).

“For those instances of inconsiderate/irresponsible/poor standard of driving which have been submitted to us during June 2021 we have prosecuted 55% of them.

“For incidents of driving which demonstrate particular high levels of risk then we encourage the public to report these to us providing video evidence via Extra Eyes on the Safer Essex Roads Partnership website.”
