Police seek help tracking illegal drivers

Created on 14/10/2010 @ 09:30

Are you aware of anybody who is driving illegally? If so Dyfed Powys Police would like to hear from you.

Later this month, the Welsh Forces led by North Wales Police will be launching the all Wales Illegal Driver Campaign – a campaign aimed at targeting those who drive whilst disqualified, drive with no insurance or drive with no valid driving licence.

Dyfed Powys Police Operations Chief Inspector Ian Thomas said: “All the Welsh forces will be tackling the issue of illegal drivers later this month, and we encourage anyone who suspects illegal driving to contact the police immediately.

“Police have powers to arrest people driving illegally, but also to seize illegal vehicles and remove them from our roads. They are a danger to other road users, and will not be tolerated. We will do everything in our power to safeguard the lives of other, legal road users.”

Dyfed Powys Police is asking for the public’s assistance in their efforts to make the roads safer for all.

If anybody has information about illegal drivers in Wales they should contact the police on 101, the Force’s non-emergency line, or Crimestoppers
Wales anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Penalties for illegal drivers can include:

Driving without insurance: 6-8 points and up to £5,000 fine (£200 for fixed
penalty ticket)
Driving whilst disqualified: 6 points, up to £5,000 fine and you could face a
minimum 6 month prison sentence
Driving other than in accordance with your driving licence: 3-6 points and
£1,000 fine
Failing to identify the driver of the vehicle: 3 points
