Quoted from NeilT
Soon all cars will go through a big brother check, even when driving..

Re insurance, this is vital...



So does this not happen where you are yet?? happens here. The police run a check on your registration and get all those details from that..... I for one think it`s a good idea.

Thing is though, although they reckon you get an 80 fine if your tax disc is out of date - I know that this is not altogether true.


Someone I know used to work in a PO counter (where tax discs were sold) and was told by more than one customer that the DVLA don't generate the fines (as they had deliberately not renewed to see what happens (stupid if you ask me!!!)  - and the Police can't do anything with out of date tax discs (except report it to the DVLA) so bit pointless really....

If they threaten this, it should be done on every occasion regardless....

Tis true the police can only report to DVLA, but they will then ask to see valid drivers licence,  insurance and if vehicle is over 3 years old an MOT

Not if the car is simply parked up - and no-one in it. They don't go door knocking for an out of date tax disc - and believe me, with my "past life" I KNOW this to be the case!!!!
