Uninsured Lamborghini Seized By Police

The Lamborghini Aventador was seized by police in Newham after it was found that the driver’s policy did not cover him to get behind the wheel. Police were initially alerted to the vehicle after it was caught with its front number plate missing.

The car was one of 180 seized last Tuesday as part of operation Cubo, designed to crackdown on uninsured vehicles. 37 people were also arrested on the same day for offences including drink-driving, robbery and driving without insurance.

Sunroof Preferred to Sat Nav

A survey by Best of the Best found that two-thirds of drivers opted for a sunroof as an optional extra when buying a new car ahead of satellite navigation.

Satellite navigation did, however, come in at a close second with head-up display and parking sensors also making the top five. Digital TV came in fourth place with a high-end audio system seventh.

Drivers Using iPads

A police crackdown has caught two drivers using their iPads behind the wheel. The operation, in Hampshire and Thames Valley, identified a string of offences committed by drivers, adding up to a total of almost two-hundred motoring misdemeanours.

These indiscretions included over half of those caught using their mobile phones behind the wheel, as well as many committing other more unusual felonies.

Some of these included drivers having a shave or applying make-up in order to save time during their commute, or even brushing their teeth with a bottle of water!

Each driver of the 198 identified to be breaking the law will receive a £100 fine, as well as three points on their driving license.

Safe driving from Britannia!
