A Volkswagen Golf was stopped on the Eboracum Way in Layerthorpe as part of Operation Tutelage, according to North Yorkshire Police.
A police spokesman said: “Another vehicle was confiscated over the weekend.”
“No license? No insurance?
No problem… we’ll take your car with us.”
Operation Tutelage is a national police initiative to reduce uninsured driving.
If a vehicle is seen on the road and checks by the police and the car insurance database show that it is not insured, a letter will be sent to the authorized owner asking them to insure the vehicle.
The letter asks the registered owner to determine if there is a problem with the vehicle’s insurance and to take remedial action.
The penalty for the offense of driving a vehicle without insurance is a fixed penalty of £300 and six penalty points on your driving licence. If the case goes to court, you can get an unlimited fine and a driving ban.
