Hampshire police launch online tool to report crashes
CRASHES can now be reported online to police after the launch of a new tool.
Hampshire Constabulary is among the first outside of London to offer the service.
The tool allows people to report crashes and upload images or video.
A Hampshire police spokesman said: '˜The new service has been designed based on extensive user research and uses proven technology that is already benefitting the public inÂ London.
'˜Residents of Hampshire andÂ ThamesÂ ValleyÂ are the first outside of the capital to benefit. This is part of a national project, driven by the Digital Public Contact programme, that is aimed at creating a Single Online Home benefitting people across the whole country. 101 is national, 999 is national, digital services should be the same.
'˜Early data from testing shows that reporting road traffic incidents online is proving convenient for the public.'
It is separate from a Â£32m over-budget new contact management system.
