Motoring Notes

Saw a DVLA van cruising Treforest train station car park the other morning. A bit of investigation revealed that the vans patrol the streets and are equipped with automatic number plate reader technology. The roof-mounted cameras read the number plates of vehicles parked at the roadside or even in a private car park. The number plates are checked against a list of untaxed vehicles and the untaxed vehicle is then clamped.

Nice to see that some other motoring ‘crimes’ are being pursued as well as the easy-money speed (sorry, safety) cameras.
