Leith driver found with ‘insufficient tread' and no tax
A driver in Leith was charged with a fine of £200 and issued penalty points yesterday after road policing officers found the driver did not have a test certificate and did not possess a vehicle excise license (VEL) for their vehicle.
The driver was issued two conditional offers by the road policing officers in Edinburgh, consisting of three penalty points and a charge of £200.
Officers also found that the front offside tyre of the vehicle had what they described as ‘insufficient tread’ which could have led to the vehicle being a danger on the road.
The DVLA has been notified about the lack of VEL.
A Road Policing Scotland spokesperson said: “Vehicle stopped by Edinburgh RP in Leith for no test certificate & no vehicle excise licence (VEL).
"Officers also noticed the front offside tyre had insufficient tread.
"Two conditional offers were issued totalling 3 penalty points & £200 & DVLA notified about no VEL.”
