‘There is no hiding place’ – South Armagh PSNI to uninsured motorists

Motorists who flout the law and put their own and others safety at risk on the roads will have no hiding place.

That is according to Police in South Armagh, who say they are sending a clear message to motorists after officers on patrol in Camlough on Saturday, 23rd February detected a motorist driving with no insurance.

Officers observed a silver Audi A4 and were able to conduct a mobile check on their Blackberry devices which showed no insurance for the vehicle.

Police stopped the vehicle and the male driver admitted having no insurance. The vehicle was seized and a ‘Seized by Police’ sticker placed on the window as a deterrent to other road users.

The driver will be reported to the PPS and will face the cost of recovering his vehicle.

Speaking to Newry Times, Constable Bell said, “We are committed to reducing the number of people killed or injured on our roads. We will continue to conduct patrols and target those who drive with no licence or insurance as they pose a real risk to all road users.”
