Dangerous driving; untaxed vehicle then abandoned

Reported via desktop in the Abandoned vehicles category anonymously at 14:48, Fri 7 October 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3875055.

I was nearly hit by a car on Boongate roundabout at 13:05 BST on 07 October 2022. I got a very good look at the car make and model (BMW 520d saloon in grey/silver) and registration number (YG57 YOW), and the driver (asian or middle-eastern with short dark hair), who glared at me in a sinister way. I followed them onto the parkway (because I live in Yaxley) and off at Stanground heading towards Farcet. But then they parked up outside the Stanground school (layby or bus stop on the sam side as the school), where at least 4 people got out quickly and started to walk off. It looks very much like they realised they had been observed and needed to ditch the car. I cannot prove it is abandoned but I think the Police should investigate. I was only able to file an Untaxed Vehicle Report on the police website because the dangerous driving form became circular. Given that my car WAS hit only a week earlier in a similar incident (and in that case the driver sped off) I think there is some organised crime to shine a light on. It's endangering road users in the Peterborough area.
