Vehicles being driven on the Island’s roads without valid tax, MOTs or insurance policies were stopped during a crackdown operation yesterday (Wednesday).
Local Police joined the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA) and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) in Yarmouth and Newport in a bid to identify and stop those driving illegally.
A total of 9 vehicles were found to be driving without tax, with others found to have no valid MOT certificate. A number of cars were also found to have no insurance cover in place.
Officers also checked for defects such as faulty lights and exhaust systems.
