  1. I was driving my partners car today when I was pulled over by the police. He escorted me to his car and told me I have no insurance. I stated I did have insurance, he then pointed to a computer screen just showing my partners name, and not mine. He then proceeded to ask for my keys, advised the car would be impounded and I would get a letter with a 300 pound fine and 6 points, and sent me on my 3 mile walk home. I eventually got home, got in my own car and drove to my partners work to take her to the police station with all her documents so she could find out where her cars be
  2. We have motor trade insurance, with three named drivers on the policy to drive any vehicle. The police pulled one of our vehicles over as it didn't show up on the MID. It was explained that it was covered under the policy and I even drove down to meet the officer and gave him the insurance papers. The police officer misunderstood the policy and said the driver was not allowed to drive the vehicle but I was allowed, but he still ordered a tow vehicle and impounded the car. We got our insurance company to speak directly to the police the very next morning to say the driver was covered to dr
  3. Car impounded due to car insurer’s failure to transfer no claims bonus to new policy which led to the cancellation of my insurance policy. My car was impounded by the Police this week, the reason, the insurer said they sent letters out asking for evidence of my no claims bonus and because they did not receive the evidence, my car insurance was cancelled. I was not notified that my policy had been cancelled and did not receive any letters I have been with the same insurance company for over 25 years and they hold all the information about my no claims bonus electronically My
  4. Had to walk home from Sainsbury's and leave my car in the petrol station. Nothing wrong with the car and I haven't broken any laws. I filled the car with petrol and went to pay using my debit card as usual. Transaction didn't go through due to a problem with the internet. I was told to go to the cash machnines to draw the cash to pay for the petrol. The Sainsbury's cash machines were also not working. I walked over to the Asda cash machines and they weren't working either. Being unable to pay for the petrol I was not allowed to take my car from the
  5. Hello My niece and her boyfriend had broke down in her car, so they push it off the road onto the kerb. She tried for 20 minutes to start the vehicle but it could not be started. I came back with them early next day with my vehicle transporter trailer, but the car had been towed and impounded by the council. I thought this was a matter for the police, to remove vehicles which are illegally or dangerously parked? Her's was parked safe by the way even though on the kerb. She put this to the council but they want her to pay fine then she gets her car. Also the council requested s
  6. Sorry i am new to this page and i don't know how it works well. I live in Reading and i brought a Spanish car with Spanish registration on the 8th June 2014. I brought the car into UK for bringing goodies into my home in Reading. On the 16th June 2014 a police officer stopped my partner when he was driving the car and the police officer clamped and impounded the car because the car was used in UK without a UK license and UK tax. On the 17th June i paid 260 pound fee for releasing the car from the pound and paying a surety fee. Then, i was explained that the car neede
  7. Hello, this is my first post so apologies if I've not posted it in the correct place. my brother got a flat tyre and/or ran out of petrol, not sure which. He left the car parked not obstructing anything overnight. He came to it the next day to find it was gone, reported it stolen to find out the police had taken it -reason, because he'd left tools in the back which he'd just collected that day -he's a mechanic and these are the only tools he has! He was told they'd ring him back and tell him where his car was, they didn't. Finally got through to them and they didn
  8. Hi guys, I witness a tragic accident on Sunday morning and even though my car wasn't involved the police have impounded it. They say this is just procedure but as you can imagine this is very inconveniencing for me. There was no damage or marks on my car and was really no need for them to do this, to be honest they treated me like I was a criminal and it thoroughly peed me off and I doubt I will be stopping to help at an accident any time soon again even if I am the first on the scene. My main question is, do they have the right to do this and is there any way I can make them return it? I ne
  9. I had sent my car to a mechanic to get it fixed. Unfortunately the mechanic and his landlord have had a dispute over the rent lawfully due and the landlord has now decided to lock the garage and has taken the keys to my car. The landlord claims not to have taken anything from inside the garage and only secured the garage with his own padlock. My mechanic has not been able t access the garage and the police have refused my mechanic from re-entering the garage. I am therefore unable to retrieve my possessions. I have agreed with my mechanic that I can have my car back and will not owe
  10. Hi I was stopped by the police the other day for having no tax (the tax ran out the day before, but I had applied for new tax online, it just hadn't arrived yet), so I explained to the police man that I have applied for it, he then phoned the dvla, they said they had no information on me applying for it so the officer got my car impounded. I then phoned up the dvla very angry as they had taken my money for the tax so how did they have no information, the dvla then told me that they had never received a call from anyone that day about my car and that they could see that I had taxed my
  11. My son got pulled over by the police for exceeding the speed limit and it turned out he had missed renewing his photo driving licence. The police have therefore impounded his car. He has to apply for a renewal which could take 3 weeks to arrive. My question is there any way his car can be taken out of the impound. My insurance company will not provide insurance for this specific requirement. In the meantime my son could rack up huge storage fees. Any advice gratefully welcomed
