Driver with ‘poor eyesight’ fails to heed police warnings and has car seized in Derbyshire
Police have taken another car off the streets after a driver was reported for no licence or insurance in Derbyshire.
The driver previously featured on the Channel 5 programme Traffic Cops on two separate occasions after initially being pulled over by officers from Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit.
But, the man continued to drive despite having no licence or insurance and has now had his car seized.
Posting on Twitter, Derbyshire RPU said: “Remember this older chap with poor eyesight who featured on #TrafficCops twice? You let us know he has continued to drive despite no licence or insurance.
"He forced our hand - today we have seized his car, reported him for summons and made a social care referral for extra support.”
Traffic Cops is Britain’s longest running and most watched police show, and regularly features officers from Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit dealing with major incidents on the county’s busiest roads.
The programme airs weekly on Mondays at 8pm on Channel 5.
