Police seize driver’s car he bought THAT DAY after racing along Sheffield Parkway
Two cars were seized after motorists were spotted racing along the Sheffield Parkway.
When the cars were both stopped, one motorists claimed to have only bought his car that day. He did not have any insurance in place.
The other motorist already had a Police Reform Act warning on his record for the nature of his driving in the last year.
South Yorkshire Police said: “One of our colleagues was on the Sheffield Parkway on Sunday, in a fully marked and very visible police vehicle we ought to add, when he noticed two cars apparently trying to audition for ‘Fast and Furious: Steel City’.
“They were quite clearly racing each other.
“We aren’t sure whether they thought our colleague wanted to join in when he started following them, or whether they lacked the necessary observational skills, but it wasn’t long before our colleague had both cars stopped for a discussion.
“The driver of one had just bought the car that day and thought they might test out the power of their new machine. Unfortunately, in their haste to get their toe down, they had forgot to sort out some insurance for their new whip.
“Even more unfortunately, their second placed friend had already had a Police Reform Act warning about their driving within the last twelve months.
“Both cars seized and taken to one of our recovery operator’s yards until the driver’s can sort themselves out.”
