Disqualified driver caught twice in a day
Officers have been carrying out an operation to tackle uninsured drivers, with dozens snared so far as part of the project.
During the operation, police seized a car in Preston, being driven by a disqualified driver.
And police revealed the same driver had already been caught earlier the same morning, driving a BMW which was also seized.
Officers described the incident as showing “what we’re up against”.
A post on Facebook from PC Nigel Keates said: “This is what we’re up against.
“As part of our operation to tackle uninsured drivers, this vehicle was seized in Preston yesterday being driven by a disqualified driver.
“Unbelievably the very same disqualified driver was caught earlier that morning driving a BMW which was also seized!
“Driver now in custody and remanded until Monday.
“Well done #Team1RPU.”
The incident happened on Saturday, with the driver remanded in custody until Monday this week.
In the crackdown, a total of 94 vehicles had been seized by Monday.
Police said 45 uninsured vehicles had been discovered at the weekend.
A tweet from Lancashire Road Police on Monday said: “Another 45 uninsured vehicles seized at the weekend making a total of 94 vehicles seized and off the roads of Lancashire #opdriveinsured.”
