Go Safe receives royal
award for Operation SNAP

12.12.2018

Go Safe Wales has received a prestigious royal award for its online reporting system, Operation SNAP, which allows the public to submit photographic evidence of bad driving to the police.

Go Safe was presented with a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award at a ceremony in London yesterday in recognition of the project’s success.

Operation SNAP, which was rolled out across Wales in April 2017, allows videos and photographs from dashcams, helmet cameras and personal video to be easily uploaded online and used as evidence to prosecute offenders.

The project has since been adopted nationwide.

Teresa Ciano, Go Safe Partnership Manager (pictured), said: "It’s been an honour to work on such an exciting project. It really is a multi-agency effort, and everyone involved has worked hard to deliver.

“Together, we want to make all our roads safer.”

The project’s success was based on the development of a secure method of receiving third party media which is acceptable as evidence, while at the same time making the process straightforward for the public.

This example is likely to be of most interest to Road Safety Support members. However, a full list of the many well-deserving award winners can be found here:
