  • If you’re learning to drive or ride, you’ll no doubt be studying the Highway Code to learn the rules of the road. From today there are changes to the rules on using motorways, so it’s as important as ever that you “check the Code” – and continue to do so on a regular basis. For life, not just learners The rules in the Highway Code are updated when there are changes in the law. New rules may be added while you are preparing for your practical test, or after you have passed. There have been 15 changes since 2015 alone. That means it’s really important to stay up to date, whether you’ve only had one lesson or held a licence for years. Most recent changes The changes made as of today refer to guidance on smart motorways. A total of 33 existing rules will be amended and two new rules introduced, with a number of amendments made to the additional information annexes. These include: clearer advice on where to stop in an emergency the importance of not driving in a lane closed by a Red X the use of variable speed limits to manage congestion updated guidance on key factors that contribute to safety-related incidents, including unroadworthy vehicles, tailgating and driving in roadworks How to stay updated It’s easy to keep up to date with the Highway Code, and any other future changes, online. GOV.UK includes a list of the latest updates that have been made, so it’s quick and easy to see what has changed. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code/updates You can also sign up for email alerts whenever the Highway Code is updated. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code The Highway Code on GOV.UK allows you to: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code search for key words and phrases within The Highway Code quickly move between related rules follow links to the original laws that the rules are based on print sections more easily There’s also an official Highway Code app. More ways to stay up to date You can follow @HighwayCodeGB on Facebook to get regular road safety reminders and news of any updates. Future changes and print editions Over the coming months we anticipate some further changes to the Highway Code; we will keep you informed of these by email, on GOV.UK and on social media. We will write to you again with further details about the next, new printed edition of The Official Highway Code in 2022.

  • We want to urge local residents that are selling off-road motorcycles, quad-bikes and ATVs online, particularly on selling platforms such as Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree, to be vigilant following a number of reports of thefts or attempted thefts across the county. It comes after numerous sellers have received a call, or direct message, from people pretending to be ‘buyers’ and requesting an image or a video of the vehicle engine running from the seller. Those pretending to be ‘buyers’ have then extracted the image metadata – which allows users to see when and where the image or video was taken – allowing the bike to be pinpointed to a specific location. The vehicles are then targeted by criminals and are often stolen or attempts made to steal the vehicles. We know online buying and selling sites have grown in popularity in recent months, however we want to remind people to please be vigilant when selling items in this way. Our advice would be: • Ensure that ‘location’ settings are switched off on your mobile device / camera if you’re then sending images to prospective ‘buyers’; this would mitigate against the location metadata being extracted and the vehicle located • If asked for additional images or videos from prospective buyers, upload them directly to your online listing; do not send them directly • Do not provide you home or work address to buyers; arrange to meet them in a public place or neutral location • Report any crimes or suspicious activity via our online reporting tool via the Hampshire Constabulary website - https://www.hampshire.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/ •If a crime is in progress, please dial 999 immediately Message Sent By Wes Hutchins (Police, Corporate Communications Officer, Hampshire)

  • We are urging those selling high value electrical items online, particularly on Facebook Marketplace, to be vigilant following a number of reports where people pretending to be ‘buyers’ have walked away with the goods after convincing the seller they have paid via bank transfer. There have been a total of 21 incidents since August 14 across Hampshire. Laptops, mobile phones, tablets, games consoles, a drone and a watch are amongst the items stolen, ranging in price from £370 to £3400. Those pretending to be ‘buyers’ have answered a seller’s advert quickly and when they have turned up to collect the items, they have then convinced the buyer they have transferred the money by showing them the transfer on a banking app. When the sellers have said they can’t see the money in their account, the ‘buyers’ have convinced them it will appear soon and have left with the goods. On some occasions, the ‘buyers’ have taken a photo of the seller on their doorstep and asked them to produce ID. We know online buying and selling sites are really popular and are a great way to trade second hand items, however we want to remind people to please be vigilant when selling items in this way. Our advice would be: • Always check and be completely satisfied the money is in your bank account before you hand over the goods. Genuine buyers will accept that this is correct practice • Have someone with you at home when prospective buyers attend, or arrange to meet them in a public place • You do not need to show anyone ID. There should be no reason to pass over your personal details / ID to a prospective buyer • If you believe someone has attempted to scam you in this way, please try and note down a description of the people involved or vehicle they travelled in and make a report. • Report any suspicious activity via our online reporting tool https://www.hampshire.police.uk/ro/report/fo/v1/fraud/ Message Sent By Marisa Charles (Police, Corporate Communications Officer, Hampshire)

    The current situation in Afghanistan is largely due to foreign interference from a variety of sources, going back to the nineteenth century. The British division of Pushtun tribes between India and Afghanistan started calls for an independent Pushtunistan, leading Pakistan to encourage a rival Islamist movement to avoid losing territory. This article from 2002 gives a detailed and fascinating explanation of events. It is not short, but worth reading if you want to understand how we got to here. It should be a lesson to politicians not to interfere. https://www.washingtoninstitute.org/policy-analysis/who-responsible-taliban

    GRAHAM BRADY, Chairman of the Tory 1922 Committee A few highlights for anyone who thinks the article is too long to read. “Almost nobody is asking the serious questions about whether facemasks are actually effective in stopping the spread of Covid. Until very recently, both the World Health Organisation and the public health authorities in this country were saying there was very little evidence in favour of wearing them.” “The experience of different US states is instructive. California covered up and Florida didn’t, but it was the Sunshine State that emerged in better shape from the pandemic.” “Many (UK) politicians and advisers will admit privately that the policy change compelling people to wear masks was not really about the spread of infection at all but about the psychological effect that they would have. That real purpose is social control – to provide a constant reminder to maintain distance from other people. To maintain a state of anxiety that leaves people more likely to comply with the restrictions that might otherwise be resisted or forgotten.” https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-9798365/GRAHAM-BRADY-believe-real-purpose-masks-social-control-time-stop-fear.html

    • A gay man alleged he had been ripped off by a drug dealer because of his sexuality. • In Norfolk, a Portuguese national said an unknown person had deliberately left a burger bun on their driveway ‘due to their ethnicity’. In total, 10,840 non-crime hate incidents were logged last year, bringing the total in the past five years to 120,000 – but Freedom of Information requests sent to 43 police forces in England and Wales failed to identify a single crime that had been solved as a result. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9798849/Man-gets-racial-hatred-police-record-whistling-Bob-Builder-theme-tune.html

    The last post on Silverstone was closed before I saw it. 141,000 people (mainly) driving to Silverstone to see big boys’ Scalextric. In view of the desperate need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all sources, is it time to stop motor sports or at least stop vast numbers travelling to see events? The same principle applies to other mass attendance events.

    The Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit of Hampshire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police are supporting the National Police Chiefs Council Speeding Campaign, running from the 19 July to 8 August. Throughout the campaign, officers will be carrying out enforcement across the force area, targeting a small but significant minority of drivers who make the choice to speed, increasing the risks to themselves and other road users. In 2019, there were 1,561 collisions where people were either killed or seriously injured across Hampshire and Thames Valley. Of those collisions, 191, around 12%, were recorded as having either excessive speed or travelling too fast for the conditions, as contributory factors. PC Dave Hazlett, Road Safety Officer for Hampshire & Thames Valley Police said: “As traffic gradually increases to pre-pandemic levels, the risk of collisions will naturally increase. “We are urging drivers and riders to simply slow down; not only to drive within the speed limit but also drive to the road conditions. “There are times when driving to a speed limit maybe too fast particularly on motorways, dual carriageways and rural roads which present higher risks. “Expect the unexpected and drive at an appropriate speed where you can react quickly to any hazards and stop safely. “Speeding is one of the fatal four factor that could increase the chance of road users being killed or seriously injured in a road traffic collision. “It’s not worth the risk.” Message Sent By James Butler (Police, Corporate Communications Officer, Hampshire and Isle of Wight)

    The Nationality and Borders Bill is the cornerstone of the government’s New Plan for Immigration, delivering the most comprehensive reform in decades to fix the broken asylum system. The bill – and the wider plan – has 3 key objectives: To make the system fairer and more effective so that we can better protect and support those in genuine need of asylum To deter illegal entry into the UK breaking the business model of criminal trafficking networks and saving lives To remove from the UK those with no right to be here The introduction of the bill was preceded by a consultation, which the government has carefully considered. The government will publish its response in due course. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/the-nationality-and-borders-bill https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-9766703/ALP-MEHMET-Priti-Patels-crackdown-migrants-weve-heard-before.html

    Hampshire Police has received a few reports from NS&I customers who have had their accounts compromised and savings withdrawn. From initial reports, it appears that the customers' BT account is compromised giving the suspect access to emails and landline call forwarding functions. These services are exploited by criminals to gain control of the victims NS&I accounts. Once breached the victim's funds are withdrawn. BT is the only telecoms provider featured in reports thus far, but many other companies provide email services and landline call forwarding functionality that will allow this scam to operate. Any email account linked to finances must have good security. If you do not have 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) on your email account, you are very vulnerable to account compromise and should consider linking those financially important accounts to a more secure email address that has 2FA.

    Hundreds of people have been caught not wearing a seatbelt by officers during a successful month of action. From Monday, 24 May until Sunday, 13 June, the Joint Operations Unit (JOU) of Hampshire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police supported the National Police Chiefs' Council seatbelt campaign. This saw officers highlighting the dangers of not wearing a seatbelt – and from 31 May, carrying out dedicated operations targeting those who fail to wear a seatbelt despite the clear dangers. Officers stopped 342 vehicles in Thames Valley, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight as part of the campaign. Together with council partners, officers from the JOU’s Road Safety Unit educated those who were not wearing or incorrectly wearing seatbelts as well as drivers with an unsuitable child seat. Unfortunately, 214 people chose not to wear a seatbelt and were reported for that offence. Some may have the option to carry out an online diversion course, Your Belt, Your Life. Drivers with pets that were not properly secured were also given advice on keeping them safe for future journeys. Sgt Scott Kerr, Road Safety Sergeant for Hampshire and Thames Valley Police, said: “The recent seatbelt campaign in May and June showed that the vast majority of people are wearing their seatbelts. This is very positive, as we know that wearing a seatbelt correctly saves lives. “It does not matter how far you are travelling, every journey needs all occupants to buckle up. Research has shown that many collisions occur at low speed and within only a few miles of home. “You are twice as likely to lose your life in a collision if you are not wearing a seatbelt. If unrestrained, you will hit the windscreen, or the front seat in the case of a rear seat passenger, at a force of 30 to 60 times your own body weight. “Please wear a seat belt every time you travel in a vehicle. It's just not worth the risk.” Message Sent By James Butler (Police, Corporate Communications Officer, Hampshire and Isle of Wight)

  • This time of year often brings with it a rise in deer vehicle collisions. The following advice is what to do if you are involved in one, or become aware of a situation in which you might need to know what to do next. STAY SAFE AND REPORT THE INCIDENT If you see an injured deer on the roadside? - Pull over at a safe place - Call the Police. - Giving as precise a location as you can (eg What3Words) - They will deal with the situation and have access to specialists. - Do not try to assist or move the deer as this can put you in danger. If you hit a deer while driving, your priorities, in this order, are: - Keep yourself and anyone with you as safe as you can - Park your car in the safest place with hazard lights on. - Call an ambulance if human injuries warrant it - Call the Police If the deer is alive and still visible at roadside: - It is best not to approach it. Doing so may cause it to run across traffic causing another accident. - Do not move or handle live deer, this needs a trained specialist. Do not attempt to place it in your car. - Call the Police. - Giving as precise a location as you can (eg What3Words) - They will deal with the situation and have access to specialists.
