Many people in East Yorkshire are concerned about illegal foreign cars being driven here in UK, and Accident Advice Helpline echo their sentiment.
Thousands are flouting the law
It appears that foreign motorists are driving cars bearing overseas number plates illegally here in East Yorkshire, in order to avoid paying road tax, fines, and having safety checks carried out.
Any owners of foreign cars are legally obliged to register their vehicles with the DVLA within six months of importing them into the country, to make sure they not only get taxed and insured, but also are safe to drive. However, it appears thousands of foreign motorists are flouting this law, and no one has yet been prosecuted.
No win no fee* in East Yorkshire claims with Accident Advice Helpline
It appears that DVLA do not hold any records of when vehicles are brought into the UK, therefore it’s impossible for them to determine how long a car has actually been here. In the meantime it’s reported that as many as 15,000 vehicles could be being driven illegally. Regular MOT testing is designed to ensure that vehicles are safe to drive. It is also a fundamental requirement for obtaining road tax, and vehicle insurance.
Not only do these foreign vehicles pose a safety threat, and could therefore be the cause of numerous accidents, but if they do cause an accident, drivers have no insurance to cover claims for compensation.Open Claim Calculator
