This Bentley was removed from the roads after Bromley Police targeted uninsured drivers.


A Bentley worth more than £100,000 was seized by Bromley Police, as they continue to crackdown on uninsured drivers.

The six-litre Continental GTC was stopped in Widmore Road, Bromley, as police checks revealed the vehicle was without insurance. The driver now faces a ban as he already had nine points on his license.

Bromley officers have seized more than 1,300 vehicles in the last 18 months, removing them from the borough’s roads.

The penalty for driving a vehicle without insurance is six penalty points and a £300 fine.

Pc Stuart Manuel, of Bromley Police, said: “Our actions are targeting the minority of drivers who commit an offence by not insuring their vehicles and over the past eighteen months this has had a tremendous impact across the borough.

“Uninsured drivers are five times more likely to be involved in a road collision, and many are more likely to be involved in criminal activity. They also increase other drivers’ insurance premiums.

“We are here for London and we want to reclaim the capital’s roads for responsible and law abiding drivers”.
