Pure coincidence put an end to the man’s ownership of his brand new, silver Renault Megane, as police revealed on Twitter at Northampton Hub Specials. But common sense and the rule of law could prevent him. Shortly after driving the car off the plot earlier this week, the driver lost control of the car and nearly crashed into a police vehicle.
Then – you guessed it – they asked him for the documents and there was one he couldn̵
“This vehicle is almost in front of our engine,” say from the police. “Then the driver told the officers that he had brought the car 30 seconds ago and for the first time this was actually true. Unfortunately, he risks not insuring it. And well, you all know what happens next .. # Seized. “
Ever since this strange incident was made public on social media, jokes have not stopped coming. “Passed in 30 seconds”, reef on behalf of the cult film Disappeared in 60 seconds, is a favorite, but “From new car to no car” comes as a strong second. The bottom line is that in the UK, the uncertainty of your car is a sure way to find yourself in an alternative vehicle in the foreseeable future.
Not that it prevents drivers from taking risks. Northamptonshire has been running a road safety campaign, Operation Journey, throughout October and the findings reveal that uninsured driving is the most common traffic disorder. And it always ends with the seizure of the vehicle, even when it is brand new.
This vehicle is almost head over heels with our bike. The driver then told the officers that he had brought the car 30 seconds ago and for the first time this was actually true. Unfortunately, he risks not insuring it. And well you all know what happens next .. #Seized # s3812BRANDHAM pic.twitter.com/O5XF3oboGO
