Reports Of Bad Driving Continue To Be Filed With North Yorkshire Police On Operation Spartan

Inspector David Barf, North Yorkshire Police, Roads Policing Group

In December 2016, North Yorkshire Police launched Operation Spartan, an scheme encouraging people to report dangerous driving.

Northumbria Police started Operation Dragoon in 2013 and North Yorkshire took the learning from that operation and implemented a similar scheme in the county.

The Operation is about identifying repeated incidents of poor driving and help change that. Anyone can go to the Police’s website and report driving that may be of concern. A report is then read and categorised.

A single report would not necessarily lead to action from the police, but multiple reports would likely hit their radar.
