Police were forced to remove 22 vehicles from the roads of Cambridgeshire after they were found to be ‘illegal’.
The operation involved the latest advancements in Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology.
The system automatically and instantly checks registration numbers against a database of wanted and uninsured vehicles, informing the police of any law breakers.
The vehicles were seized on 24th September after being found to be breaking the law in one way or another.
Some vehicles were found to be uninsured with others harbouring serious defects.
However, it wasn’t just the transport that was found to be unlawful.
Five arrests were made due to the driver being responsible for theft, possession of drugs with intent to supply, driving under the influence of excessive alcohol and driving whilst disqualified.
One person was taken into custody following the issue of an international arrest warrant.
The operation saw over 100 police officers in force throughout Peterborough, scanning car parks for uninsured and wanted vehicles.
Police are impressed with the ANPR system, allowing for instant and rapid response and helping to rid the streets of unlawful vehicles.
