    Cool How to upload dash cam video to police?!

    Anyone any suggestions as to how to upload to the police, dash cam video of very bad driving?
    I have tried 105.police.govt.nz and other sites.
    Even emailed our local police station but got this reply from a cop that don’t know: “The Police computer systems are designed to intercept and quarantine any unknown attachments sent via email for security reasons. This means your emails are not able to be properly received or actioned”.
    With so many dash cams out there you would think that the police would embrace anything to assist with “education” of the bad drivers!

    I suspect they simply dont have the time.
    if they cant respond to burglaries, they wont be bothering with dashcams.
    they even shut down private individuals ( a tv show) who setup stings to catch car thieves : they didnt want to have to deal with it (all they had to do was arrest people, far too busy)

    Far too busy handing out tickets in private carparks at shopping malls: yes they actually did that , setup a sting and ticketed drivers not wearing seatbelts in carparks

    Copy your video onto a USB stick and drop it into your local Police Station

    They WILL take notice.

    Just report it and tell them you have video. If they care, they'll contact you for the video...

    Had a near miss with a milk-tanker on my side of the road. Gave the footage to the local police, and notified the transport manager of the company concerned. The police told me they would take a prosecution, I assume they did, and the employer was also going to take some form of disciplinary action. He viewed the in truck footage of the incident, which he informed me shocked him. The only issue was the almost 10 weeks it took to get my memory stick returned.

    If you want to upload then you can do the whole Video at https://ufile.io/ Then send a link to view.

    The Site I use for streaming some demos here is https://streamable.com/

    Again upload, send a link to view on line and they can download if they want.

    The files don't stay there forever so if they took a few weeks to look they may have been deleted. With Streamable - The free account if you want to make one gives more time. One I did for new Years still there

    will they ? from Stuff website

    "The recording shows a vehicle caught on the wrong side of the road, after the passing lanes ended, overtaking in oncoming traffic before scraping Ras' front bumper as the driver forced his way back on to the right side of the road."
    "took a flash drive with the footage into the Stratford police station but despite having the number plate of the offending vehicle was told by an officer it was a case for his insurance company."
    The police did take action after media became involved in the story

    Locally (Ak), the police took a month to get involved with someone shooting car windows (and house windows) with a air rifle . This was a almost nightly occurrence on & around one long street near me, so will they really pull finger on dash cam footage ?
    It seems to me they just dont have the resources .

    They are too busy 'chasing' after people doing 55 km/h along 50km/h roads.
