    Bit late if they kill themselves and wipe someone (innocent) out in the process.

    Guess your entitled to your opinion whoever much I might disagree. :?

    Where's the guarantee the Police will act accordingly about the complaint?

    At the end of the day, someone's driving is their own responsibility.

    No one other than the driver can be to blame in such circumstances.

    Although, i know of one person who still drives, no points, ban, or fine after killing someone in a crash.

    Well that just sums up society today, doesn't it. If it ain't affecting you it doesn't matter to you.

    That's not a bad thing. We all love our neighbours though.

    Reporting someone for something that's percieved to be dangerous driving isn't preventive measures.

    Isn't it? Why, the police are trying to take a proactive approach. Won't work with everyone, but the chance that you could save a life should be enough.

    lol i have no intention of causing offence, but i like how you say the Police are "trying to take a proactive approach". When they should be taking a proactive approach with the amount of PR work they are doing to make everyone on the island a grass.

    Anyway, here's a good read.

    Ah yes, a random internet page, must be fact :roll:

    I'm not talking about grassing someone up for every minor infraction you see (you'd never be off the phone), I'm talking about trying to stop someone that is a clear danger to others. I say it's your responsibility to do something if someone is a threat to others.

    a good read.

    agree with xbones though. if anyone is a large danger (i say large as everyone makes mistakes and it could be a one off) to anyone else then they shouldn't be allwoed on the roads.

    its a very difficult area as tehr eis only so much the police force can do.
    If everyone had the frame of mind to comply as it was in there best interests we wouldnt have any problems..
