Not sure if this has been posted before however surfing through Haunted Fishtank last night happened on "Traffic Cops," just as they said improved Police powers now meant that they could take your vehicle from you on a routine stop if you didn't have car insurance. There is no longer the seven day grace period to show licence and insurance to your local Cop Shop. Quick search on net throws up a few bits like: http://www.motorinsurance.co.uk/news/1042.html Main concern is this has not been well advertised, know a lot of people that don't carry docs in car for Sy purposes. Think police are linked to insurance companies but still wouldn't want car towed away because not carrying insurance docs. Anyone out there got any further info??
