Vehicles, known as ‘supercabs’, funded by National Highways have been used by police forces across the country to allow police officers to film evidence of unsafe driving behaviour. By pulling up alongside vehicles in these unmarked cabs the elevated position in the HGV cab assists officers to spot and film unsafe driving behaviour – whatever vehicle the motorist may be in. Drivers are then pulled over by police cars following a short distance behind. Footage has been released by National Highways of a series of incidents captured by police in unmarked cabs, ahead of a week of action on the M1. The most common offences are not wearing a seatbelt (9,962) and using a mobile phone (8,368) followed by 2,257 who were not in proper control of their vehicle.
