Personal musings, mutterings and rants on rugby and some other sports, life in Wales, family, beer, and anything else that springs to mind.

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.
