Thread: Stoke-on-Trent Police seized 16 uninsured vehicles

  1. #1

    Stoke-on-Trent Police seized 16 uninsured vehicles

    SIXTEEN vehicles have been seized by police in a crackdown on uninsured drivers

    The Cars Behind Bars operation saw unsuspected motorists pulled over by police after having their vehicle's details recorded by ANPR cameras across the city

    They were taken to a checkpoint in Etruria Old Road, Etruria, for the vehicles and drivers' details to be checked.
    Now 15 cars and one van have been seized by officers after being driven without insurance

    It is estimated that there are around 16,000 uninsured vehicles on Staffordshire's roads.

    A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "The 16 drivers have been dealt with for driving without insurance which carries a fine of £200 and six penalty points.
    "In order to get their vehicle back they have to produce proof of insurance at a designated police station then pay for the recovery and storage of the vehicle which will cost them around £200.
    "The vehicles which are not claimed back will either be crushed or, if they are of high-value, they will be sold on."

    I went out to a breakdown the other day. Police were in attendance when I got there. Customer already in the back of the cop car. Copper comes over to me and says "we'll be seizing this mate" saves me a job then :-D

    Good. Although when you consider my nephew has just been quoted £36,000 for a 1.2 Punto what came first- people not buying insurance or license to print money premiums?

    i agree with this but i dont think they should crush the cars they should auction them off to breakers or general public as they would help boost the 2nd hand car market or 2nd hand spares market
