‘We’ll never get exhausted of this’ – that’s the message from Police on the Isle of Wight who are continuing to rid the roads of uninsured vehicles and their law-breaking drivers.
Seizing vehicles isn’t just the responsibility of the Island’s Joint Roads Policing and Armed Response team – local Response and Patrol crews and even PCSOs are working to identify and stop drivers and vehicles that shouldn’t be on the road.
Last night PC Ball, SC Tosdevin, PCSO King and PCSO Hyslop worked to stop and seize a Citroen Piscaso after it was spotted being used without insurance in Ryde.
Following a number of checks the car was seized under Section 165 powers and towed away.
Response and patrol officers have been taking to Twitter in recent weeks to highlight the proactive work they are doing to stop uninsured, unroadworthy and untaxed vehicles and their drivers, some of which have proven to be unlicensed.
If you have concerns about a vehicle that is being driven illegally you can call Police on 101.
