PC Mark Hodson from the Central Motorway Police Group said: 'Most offenders watch the footage, accept their driving was below par, and elect for a driver improvement course or an offer of three licence points and £100.'This was a clear case of a close pass.
In November last year Trucker Dean Littleford, 60, was filmed passing a cyclist in his HGV in Dudley.
PC Mark Hodson from the Central Motorway Police Group said: 'Our advice to drivers overtaking cyclists and other vulnerable road users like horse riders is to be patient, plan your overtake, and give plenty of room – the Highway Code says drivers should give the same room as when overtaking another vehicle which is about 1.5-metres or an open car door's width.'A few seconds delay to ensure a safe overtake is nothing compared to the consequences of a poorly planned and executed overtake can be.' 'The case was only ten or 15 minutes long and then they said I was guilty. I don't think they were really that interested.' West Midland Police said Mr Littleford's was the first court conviction in its operation to protect riders from 'close pass' motorists and is likely to be on of the first in Britain.
The 'Give Space Be Safe' scheme encourages cyclists to send in footage of motorists driving to close to them and makes use of undercover plain clothes officers to snare drivers.
