Officers from our Roads Policing Team are keen to tackle the traffic issues that matter to you the most, and are asking for your help to determine their focus over the next three months.

Earlier this year, in April, a survey was carried out across South Yorkshire, asking the public what they thought the top priorities for our officers should be.

The top results showed that 46 per cent wanted officers to target those driving under the influence of drink and drugs, 43 per cent felt officers should target those driving whilst using a mobile phone and 37 per cent wanted to see drivers using vehicles in an anti-social manner to be stopped and prosecuted.

The results have helped shape our officers daily duties and since April, they have supported district operations, days of action and taken part in national campaigns against driving offences to enhance the safety of our roads.

Roads Traffic Policing Inspector Jason Booth explains how your opinion matters, he said: “Since our latest survey we have taken pro-active steps to keep our roads safe.

“If you follow our team on Facebook and Twitter you will see that everyday my officers are stopping drivers, seizing vehicles and carrying out drink and drug tests at the road side.
“We have implanted a dedicated car that operates daily tackling the issues that matter to you in addition to our daily officers on duty.

“Between April and June, the car identified and dealt with over 100 offences.

“We want you to continue to address the traffic issues that matter to you and we know that we are stronger with our communities; please have your say through our survey.”

The survey is open until Friday 27 September and takes a few minutes to complete- https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=155309464212
