11 vehicles were seized across Bromley yesterday.
It is the latest in the Operation Cubo crackdown on uninsured drivers.
Using ANPR technology at the stop sites at various locations across the borough, officers stopped more than 600 vehicles, seizing eleven whose drivers were uninsured and issuing 25 fixed penalty notices for motoring offences and two cannabis warning forms.
Bromley Borough Commander Chris Hafford said: “We’re continuing to send a strong message to people who choose to drive without insurance - we will seize your vehicles and remove them from our roads. Uninsured drivers are a danger to all road users and we will use every power available to us to stop these people making our roads dangerous.
“We will continue to increase the scope and scale of this operation and have increased the locations for this activity across the borough to ensure it has the maximum impact.”
Uninsured vehicles are immediately seized and potentially destroyed, whilst offenders will be prosecuted.
The penalty for driving a vehicle without insurance is six penalty points and a £300 fine, and can even lead to a driving ban.
