Car insurance: Police target rogue motorists

Tuesday, 09 December 2008

Police in Thames Valley have been targeting rogue motorists, including those who drive without car insurance.

A road safety operation carried out last week in the Stoke Hammond area resulted in six penalty notices being issued to people who were speeding and one vehicle being seized because the driver did not have cover.

Commenting on the initiative, PC Frank Callaghan said checks would continue in the locality in the run-up to Christmas.

He stated: "Officers will be clamping down on speeding, as well as checking seatbelt use and targeting uninsured and drink-drivers."

Speeding motorists who have been stopped so far have been given the opportunity to attend driving workshops, if they were travelling within certain thresholds.

Meanwhile, the Association of British Insurers recently said it would be hard to stop some people from getting behind the wheel without motor insurance, as long as the fines dished out cost less than cover.
