Tell the police about hazardous close passing

Close passing endangers and frightens cyclists which is why the police run regular operations to stop and warn or fine offenders. Police officers say they want to hear from cycle users about locations where incidents of close passing occur regularly – these could be roads without cycle lanes and those where speeds are higher than average. This will enable them to target specific locations and help reduce road danger.

The police have requested people to report hazardous close passing locations: please email info@lcc.org.uk and we will pass it on. Please provide the exact location and the type of incident encountered.

LCC staff and members of local LCC groups have attended close passing operations as observers. At such operations police stop drivers who pass a plain clothes police cyclist closely and either advise them of the danger of doing so or ticket cases judged more serious. It is not uncommon for drivers who are stopped to be fined for offences other than close passing such as uninsured vehicles etc.
