Spencer Sport has backed the ‘GoSafe – the Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership’ Operation SNAP initiative, with one of its Mitsubishi Mirage R5 rally cars the star attraction at an event at the Dyfed-Powys Police Road Safety unit’s headquarters in west Wales.
Team Principal Charlie Jukes was given exclusive access behind the scenes, where GoSafe Partnership Enquiry Officers PC Roger Jones and PC Peter Williams showed him some examples of the dangerous and irresponsible driving that members of the public have captured and sent into the force.
Operation SNAP is a response to increasing submissions of video and photographic evidence relating to driving offences that members of the public have witnessed and captured on their dash cams, or from the side of the road on their mobile ‘phones. They can take that digital footage and upload it onto gosafe.org, from where the police can decide if an offence has taken place and what the next best course of action is.
“It was fascinating to see behind the scenes at the GoSafe Partnership and see exactly what Road Safety Wales and our local Dyfed-Powys Police Force are doing to help keep our roads safe,” said Charlie. “As a responsible motorsport team, I felt it important Spencer Sport go and show our support – and particularly in rallying, where we travel on the public roads between stages. It’s a great opportunity to highlight that we all have to abide by the rules of the road, and we are delighted to be able to help champion this cause in our local community.”
