Report a possible traffic offence

Thank you. 

This incident needs to be reported via our Operation Crackdown reporting tool. 

In order to send a report you'll need the following information:

  • 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

Depending on how serious the incident is, 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.
