Bromley cops seize 14 cars in uninsured driver crackdown
POLICE have seized 14 cars as part of a crackdown on uninsured drivers.
Automatic number plate recognition technology was used to identify vehicles driven by suspected criminals and uninsured motorists.
Bromley police's borough commander Chief Superintendent Steph Roberts said: “We will continue to carry out these operations to reclaim Bromley’s roads and make them safer.
“Uninsured drivers are more likely to be involved in criminal activities and use the vehicles to facilitate their offending.”
Statistics also show that uninsured vehicles are five times more likely to be involved in accidents.
The cars were seized during day of action on Thursday known as Operation Cubo involving more than 1,000 officers in total across London.
The penalty for driving a vehicle without insurance is six penalty points and a £200 fine, with a possible driving ban.
