Meg Munn welcomes new campaign in Yorkshire to get tough on tax disc dodgers

Tuesday, March 2, 2004

The DoT’s new scheme becomes operational today in Yorkshire to catch tax disc dodgers.

Using three new schemes the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in partnership with Yorkshire Police Forces will be combating Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) evasion.

A new hotline has been set up on 08000 325 202 to allow members of the public to report apparently unlicensed vehicles to the DVLA

The DVLA will also operate a Stingray camera system which is a van based automatic number plate reader, making it possible to detect vehicles evading VED in use in moving traffic.

The third string of the campaign is a scheme to wheelclamp the more determined and longer term evader (rather than those who are a few days late renewing their licence.) This will be carried out by a contractor working with DVLA, using a high-speed computer link to the DVLA national vehicle register.

Speaking as the campaign launches today Meg Munn, Labour and Co-operative MP for Sheffield Heeley said “People who do not pay for tax discs are usually committing other motoring offences too, they often have neither insurance or a valid MOT certificate and it is really important to get these cars taxed or off the roads. Law-abiding Sheffield people have long been unhappy with the actions of the few that thumb their noses at the Police and the DVLA, now it will be possible to report tax disc dodgers on a special hotline. These Government measures are very welcome and I am sure we will see a real difference quickly.”
