Police on the Isle of Wight are reinforcing the ‘It’s Not Worth It’ message following the seizure of a car in Wroxall this afternoon (Friday).

A Toyota Rav4 has been taken off the Island’s streets after being stopped at the roadside on Mountfield Road.

Officers pulled the vehicle for having no insurance, tax or MOT. The vehicle’s MOT ran out a month ago but it has been untaxed since November last year.

The Renault Megane has been seized by Isle of Wight officers after they discovered that the vehicle hasn’t been taxed since April 2018, has had no MOT since February and has no valid insurance in place.

This begs the question. “Why are the Police not doing this routinely”? Do they not have eyes and ANPR? I have always driven legally and resent the smart arses who flout the law. They want public services and good roads but are not prepared to.share in the cost.
