Hi all,


Need some advice but think he's in trouble now.


Mate had his car clamped at the side of the road for no tax. He dropped the suspension and took the clamp off. phoned them to say the clamp is at the side of the road, they've said he's commited an offense by removing the clamp.


Whats the ramifications of whats happened.


Thanks all

Oh dear, i thought it might be.


In a further twist the guy he bought it off hasn't given him the log book so it's not in his name.


Think he's gonna wait and see what happens. When he phoned them to tell them to pick the clamp up, they said they will inform DVLA.


wait and see i guess, although i'm expecting him to get a summons or fine through the post.

It is a criminal offence to remove it. Let your mate know now.:!:

The relevant legislation can be found here. Fine is on level 2 on the standard scale which is up to £500.

Well he phoned them and told them he'd taken it off and to send someone to pick it up, which they did.


I think i'll advise him to sell the van asap, and dont give contact details!


I'll let you know what happens when it does, could be a few weeks!


@lamma, i dont think he gave his name and address, i havent seen him since. He is still about, not been carted off to a government rehabilitation camp or anything!
