Uninsured car

    I had an incident with a car today. The incident was not the worst, but bad enough. (I will post it later). However, I have some suspicion that the vehicle in question was not taxed and possibly not insured. Is there any way that I can legally find this out? Can I ask the police to investigate this?

    The incident was not serious enough to report it directly, but I feel that even if I suspect that the car was not insured then I have a duty to report it.

    Vexatious or genuinely concerned ? Either way, the MIB cover uninsured losses against these drivers.

    Speak to the police if you want to make something of it !

    2nded - apparantly in your area they'd like you to contact them in the 1st instance, rather than taking the law into your own hands. ;)

    Obviously I have no intention of taking the law into my own hands.

    It's just that I have a suspicion (fairly strong I might add). However, what would the police say if I said I had a suspicion and left it at that.

    If it turned out to be correct, I have video footage of the car being driven (dangerously) proving that the car was on the road uninsured.

    I suppose because I am saying I have a suspicion about this that there would be a problem posting the registration number?

    Hmmm. Just had a look. It would apparently be illegal for me to check on that site because I don't own and drive the car. Probably best to contact the police I suppose.

    It only says its an offence to wrongfully obtain information without "reasonable cause". You could argue dangerous driving is "reasonable cause" to have a look...

    Thanks for that. It would seem that I was wrong and the car is properly taxed. Just as well!

    I may post the incident if I have time!
