Surrey Police suggest Twitter user is ‘too childish to drive’ in response to criticism of its close pass operation

Force’s Twitter account gives as good as it gets when motorists question its approach to cycling

Surrey’s roads policing unit has been running a close pass operation recently, but it’s arguably been making just as much of an impact when discussing its efforts with people on social media.

Officers from the force’s roads policing unit were out educating motorists about close passes yesterday.

In one hour, officers stopped six drivers: four for close passes, one for not wearing a seatbelt and one for driving while using a mobile phone.

Not everyone was happy with their efforts, but the Surrey’s roads policing unit is earning a reputation for giving as good as it gets on Twitter.

A couple of weeks ago the account provided a much-retweeted comeback to one Twitter user who refused to believe that cyclists are allowed to cycle more than two abreast.

The account’s also debunked popular misconceptions about tax and insurance, as documented at the bottom of one of our recent Near Misses of the Day.
