There's a consultation in progress about the issue of siezing vehilces being driven without insurance:

Consultation closes: 12.00 noon on Friday 26 November.

Personally I think they are suggesting the application of a criminal penalty without trial and the idea is wholly illegitimate.

I don't really see how it will do any good anyway.

If a person has bought a car for £200 and doesn't bother insuring it because it will cost them £800 then it gets taken away and crushed they will just go out and buy another £200 banger and not insure that (and save themselves £600), only this time they will be more carefull about being caught.

I sometimes think this government is actively engaged in a criminal education program.
