961, foreign vehicles should be re-registered in UK after 6 months, but I suspect many are not. I used to live near an American airbase, and their cars had local numbers within a few months. On the uninsured vehicles matter, I do not know why there are not insurance discs, as we have tax discs. French vehicles carry insurance details, but then they have no checking system for insurance when taxing vehicles, as there is no road tax.
All this assumes of course that the majority of people actually have a driveway or garage...A very big and very unfair assumption. If motorists in this country actually had the road infrastructure that their roadtax is supposed to help towards, then there might be a case. As things stand and bearing in mind it takes ages for a reported non-taxed car to be 'uplifted' then this so-called 'improvement' is destined for chaos. Why can't the AA and RAC who always pop up and say the bleeding obvious when there's a motoring issue on the news, not lead a charge against the ludicrously aggressive attitude towards motorists, price of oil etc thanks to government legalised theft? And please don't bleat on about global warming..Think any MP actually cares about it in private or any Cabinet member when he/she is driven around at our expense in large cars?
