NO insurance, no MOT, no tax – and no driver’s window.
Is it any surprise this vehicle was seized by police?
The van was pulled over in Bridgwater by officers from Avon and Somerset Police’s roads policing unit.
The driver had only recently bought the van but hadn’t taken the trouble to take out insurance on it.
On top of that, the most recent MOT had run out just over a year and a half ago.
And the road tax had not been paid since March last year.
Officers questioned whether the driver would have been able to see out of his side window.
A tweet from the roads policing unit said: “Driver of this vehicle in Bridgwater had just bought it but neglected to insure it, plus the MOT expired in July 21 & the tax in March 22.
“Not too sure how he could see out of the side window so we helped him with that problem & seized it.
“Driver report to court.”
