It is important therefore that any minor bump or scrape to vehicles, or, a near miss is reported to the Highways Authority. Contact: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You should report incidents of any perceived speeding or other anti-social driving behaviour to the local police service using the 101 non-emergency number
