A car has been seized and removed from the road as part of an ongoing safety initiative.

An Audi R8 Quattro was seized on Tannery Close, Elmers End, Beckenham, as part of Bromley police’s continued crackdown on uninsured drivers which has seen 430 vehicles removed from the road since January.

The car was stopped after checks revealed the driver’s license had been revoked by the DVLA.

Officers use automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), fixed cameras and routine number plate checks to target uninsured vehicles, seizing any they find immediately and prosecuting offenders.

The penalty for driving a vehicle without insurance is six penalty points and a £300 fine and can possibly lead to a driving ban.
