‘There are still far too many people who put lives at risk on a daily basis by speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, using an electronic device at the wheel or driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs, and we will not hesitate to take action against them. We also regularly target uninsured drivers, which includes seizing their vehicles, as their disregard for the law often extends to other traffic offences and makes them a collision waiting to happen.
