Is your vehicle insured properly?
4:20pm 1st April 2011
Police in the Selby Safer Neighbourhood Command are stepping up their fight against improperly insured vehicles.
From today (Friday 1st April), the vehicles that officers will target are those being used for commercial purposes that haven’t been insured for business purposes.
This initiative builds on the patrols that officers have been carrying out since the beginning of the year, targeting all offences committed by road users.
Inspector Richard Abbott, of the Selby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:
“Officers will stop any vehicle that it appears is being used for a business purpose.
“If the van does not have the correct insurance it may be seized and the driver summonsed to court.
“The reason we are now targeting commercial vehicles is that we have seen an alarming number of commercial vehicles on the district’s roads who don’t have the proper insurance, which would have serious consequences if they collide with an innocent member of the public.”
