Kent Police have pledged to crack down on vintage vehicle insurance who are unlicensed or evade road tax and vehicle insurance. They said the vehicles were often linked to crime and they were working with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to tackle the problem. Officers also warned other motorists to be wary of people driving such cars as they were less likely to be roadworthy.
So far this year Kent Police have seized 3,984 vehicles from uninsured or unlicensed drivers. "Make roads safer". Kent Police said its officers also helped the DVLA's enforcement teams trace untaxed cars in the county.
Insp Phil Hibben, of the force's Roads Freeway vehicle insurance Unit, said: "Around £30 is added to the average vehicle insurance policy to cover the cost of uninsured drivers. We will not allow uninsured vehicles and unlicensed drivers on Kent's roads and will prosecute all drivers who commit these offences."
A spokesman for mycarcheck.com agreed that "By cracking down on these drivers, we should also make our roads safer for everyone else to use."
