Channel 5 series Motorway Cops: Catching Britain’s Speeders follows the units who patrol the UK motorways.
The police officer explained that seeing a damaged vehicle is a warning sign for motorway cops to immediately pull over a car.
The majority of the time, they found a bigger issue.
In this case, and after checking the vehicle’s plate, he discovers the car has no insurance and an expired MOT.
When he pulls over the car, the driver claims he just renewed the insurance policy. However, the MOT expired last month.
“Someone with no insurance on the vehicle, I will let them insure on the roadside.
“But if someone is trying to pull the wool over my eyes, then no – your vehicle is coming,” he explained.
The car was taken away and the driver was found guilty which cost him a £300 fine and six penalty points.
He then failed to pay and is currently awaiting a day in court.
It is reported one million drivers in the UK are currently driving without insurance.
