Clamping of cars for non-payment of vehicle tax has soared since the paper tax disc was scrapped two years ago.

 

Figures obtained by BBC News through a Freedom of Information request show an 80% rise to more than 9,000 clampings a month.

 

The DVLA says it has stepped up enforcement to send a message to drivers that they have to pay.

 

But some people complain they forgot to renew because they didn't have a disc on the windscreen to remind them.

 

The big increase in clamping has coincided with the DVLA farming out the work to a private firm, NSL, whose job is to scour each UK postcode area twice a year for untaxed vehicles.

 

Its 75 clamping vans are equipped with cameras and the DVLA's database. They can identify the non-payers by checking number plates as they drive by.

I wouldn't of thought that the above would not be necessary as the main reason for introducing the system to highlight at their fingertips (DVLA) what cars had not paid and which were still on the road (not SORN)...hence the computerised tax system ?

Cloned number plates must be a boom black market industry?

.... but while a pain in the backside, easy to challenge, as nearly every vehicle has a distinguishing feature, even if the cloners DO go to the effort of matching the plates to an identical model and colour.

I used to have a good distinguish feature on my old motor.

A sticker reading: "Sorry officer, I thought you wanted a race!"

Got rid of the car because I was stopped on a daily basis and became of police interest 😀
