Reporting bad drivers


 Sussex Police have a web site dedicated to reporting antisocial driving
The site says “  Report it
How long will it take?
It usually takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete a report to Operation Crackdown. If you have already started a report, you can return to it at any time using the link at the bottom of the page.
What information will you need to provide?
About the incident – we will ask you for:

  • The vehicle registration number (licence plate)

  • Make, model and colour of vehicle

  • Details about when and where the incident happened – our online map will help you identify the area

  • Any information that may help us identify the driver

  • About you - your contact details will be treated in confidence. See our Privacy Policy

What if you don’t want to give your name?
We are not able to react to anonymous reports. If you would rather not give your name, you can make an anonymous report to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
What happens when you make a report?
Depending on how serious the incident, whether the vehicle has been reported before, and whether the driver falls into a high risk category, we might:
  • forward your report to the Sussex Police Road Policing Unit so local officers can take appropriate action.

  • send a warning letter to the registered keeper of the vehicle.

  • keep your report in the Crackdown database, providing a history of the vehicle and allegations.

  • identify and address regular ‘hotspots’ of anti-social driver behaviour.

So it’s ALWAYS worth making a report, even if no immediate action is apparent. More about the Crackdown process
