North Yorkshire Police gains first dashcam submission prosecution
A man has become the first driver in North Yorkshire to be prosecuted after another motorist submitted footage of them overtaking dangerously.
It follows the launch of a North Yorkshire Police operation where drivers are encouraged to shop other motorists.
At Northallerton Magistrates on Monday, Marc Hyland, of Bell Farm Avenue in York, was given a 12-week suspended sentence and a 20-month driving ban.
The 25-year-old was also given 250 hours unpaid work and had to pay costs of £157 for the manoeuvre on the A19 at Thormanby in January.
