Default Reporting driving incidents to the police

Has anyone used https://www.nextbase.com/en-gb/natio...safety-portal/ to submit dash cam footage of driving offences to the police?
If you have, how did you get on, what happened once you made the submission?

I have used the submission system three times to upload dashcam footage to the police, you have to fill in a statement and state that you will be willing to attend court if needed although I have never been asked to attend, but I do know that one incident I reported was acted on. It appears that when face with clear video evidence most just own up to it.
From a reliable police source: "If the offence is clear with all relevant details, reg no, date/time and place, we will act on every one". Mostly dealt with by the FPN people but more serious cases are investigated further.

Hope that helps.

I sent a copy of an incident directly to a local force (elderly lady driving straight towards me on the wrong side of the road with her windows fully steamed up, causing me to swerve left). I was informed that a traffic officer would be on his way to speak with her and the following month, her car was up for sale and I got a call to say that she had given up driving! I felt quite bad about her losing her independence but better that than someone losing a loved one. (We had our two year old grandson in the back of the car with us) She made no apology to me when I eventually caught up with her and stopped her. I managed to find the demister for her and she had no idea where most of the controls were or what they did!

I can sympathise a little. Compared to my Triumph, the ZT is over spec'd. Powerfold mirrors are about the only "extra" I would have or find useful.

Not dash cam, but I have reported/notified the police that my neighbour has used and is still using a car that is uninsured, no MoT and no tax.

Nothing has happened.

I have reported these people online on the DVLA website every time they use their vehicle, which can be up to four times a day.

I started this in February, vehicle is still being used and is untaxed.
