Allegation of bad driving

You can report an incident of bad driving to us.  Bad driving includes any situation where you have been made to feel unsafe by the actions of other drivers on the road.  This might be tailgating, road rage or dangerous overtaking.

Often the information given to police by witnesses or victims is not enough to prosecute the offender.

Report it

If you are involved in an incident of bad driving which does not end in a collision, you can report it to us.

You will need:

  • the registration number and description of the vehicle(s) involved.
  • details of independent witnesses* or footage from a dash cam or CCTV. 
  • to be prepared to go to court to support proceedings

*Independent witnesses can be pedestrians or people travelling in other vehicles who saw the incident.  Other people in your vehicle will not count if you know them. Whilst we appreciate your time and commitment to reporting an incident of bad driving, the evidence you alone provide may not be enough to meet the criteria for the alleged offender to appear in court.

Please fill out the allegation of bad driving form below within 10 days of the incident and send to:

Traffic Process Team
Lincolnshire Police
PO Box 999

Please also provide a copy of the dash cam or CCTV footage if necessary.

The information provided on the form will help us to decide if there is enough evidence of an offence, which can be investigated and prosecuted. We will then contact the witness(es).

We may contact you if we need further information for an investigation.

If the information you and the other witnesses provide is not enough to investigate further, we will give the vehicle details to local officers for observations.
