Three cars seized in police operation in Barrow

THREE vehicles were seized by police as part of a multi-agency operation in Barrow on Saturday.

Operation Sabre saw police, VOSA and HM Revenue and Customs, carrying vehicle spot checks in Bridge Road, Barrow.

Dozens of vehicles were stopped and inspected and three vehicles were seized for having no insurance.

Eight drivers were dealt with for defective tyres and one drive was dealt with for failing to wear a seatbelt.

PC Kevin Latham, who organised the operation, said: “Keeping our counties roads safe is of paramount importance if we are to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured.

“It is a drivers responsibility to make sure they keep vehicles in good order and properly insured.”

Have your say

They need to get more of these illegal cars of the road.
The ones with no insurance push up the premiums of the law abiding drivers.
Some of the sheds you see on the road make you wonder if they have ever had a MOT.
Please can we have more of these multi-agency operations.

Fantastic, now how about sorting some of the Shocking road rage Incidents that have started to crop up so often on our local roads? Maybe Tony(secret name for the Plod) could suggest some Ideas?
