Safer Roads - Car seized for expired tax and MOT in Bridgnorth on Sunday the 17th of March 2019.

A car being driven with expired tax and MOT was seized by Police in Bridgnorth.

On Sunday the 17th of March 2019, a car was reported to the Police that appeared to have been abandoned. Police Community Support Officers Emma Smeilus and Shelley Hyde attended the area of Lodge Lane, Bridgnorth, where the vehicle had been left the day before. Checks were conducted and revealed that the tax has expired in May 2018 and MOT for the car had expired in March 2018. As a result, it was seized to prevent it from being a risk to legal road users.

One of our partner agencies was contacted to arrange for the recovery of the car. The car has now been taken of the roads, making them safer for legal drivers. If the owner of the car wants to get it back, they will have to prove that they have appropriate insurance, Tax and MOT for it.
