Police lifted 1500 motors

Have your say

POLICE ordered more than 1500 vehicles to be confiscated in Lothian and Borders during the first eight months of the year, new figures have shown.

A total of 1555 vehicles were lifted because they had been abandoned, were causing an “obstruction/danger”, or because they had been involved in a traffic collision. Motorists caught without a driving licence, valid insurance or a tax face similar penalties.

Owners have to pay a £150 removal fee and £12 daily storage to get their cars back.
