PSNI/DVLA operation targets unlicensed vehicles

The PSNI, together with representatives of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency carried out a joint operation on Monday last targeting unlicensed vehicles in Newtownhamilton.  The move was in response to complaints from local residents regarding unlicensed vehicles and parking issues in the area. 

Commenting on the PSNI Newry and Mourne Facebook page, police revealed that a total 14 vehicles were clamped, six tickets were issued and “numerous” vehicles were seized and taken away during the operation. 

Police praised the local community saying their “response and support on the day was fantastic” and revealed similar operations are planned for other areas.

“So if you or your vehicle shouldn’t be on the road…. stay off it!” they warned.
