If you witness any examples of dangerous driving, speeding, inappropriate or anti-social driving etc the police want to know about it. Without examples of problem driving the police are unable to act and problem driving will continue.
They have provided an email address where members of the public can directly report problems:
If reporting an issue please give as much detail as possible, the location and time of day are essential, registration number, colour and make of vehicle would be ideal. Adding in facts such as driver on mobile whilst speeding may get quicker response. The police need evidence as to visit a location and if they have two or three from a location it better justifies a visit.
The state of the villages roads continues to get worse. The only way we are likely to get any change is if more people report them directly to the council. Dorset County Council has a form to fill in for you to do so just click the link.
