#5 Police Immobilising Powers

This post is following on from our burnouts post (No. #10). Did you know the police can immobilise your car as soon as you are charged for doing a burnout? If you are caught, the Police will issue a ticket or a notice to appear in court and may remove your number plates, attach a ‘Number plate confiscation notice’ and give you an ‘Immobilising notice’.
You will not be able to drive the car for 90 days due to Police Immobilising Powers, and at the expiration of the number plate confiscation period, will need to collect the number plate(s) from the police station. Your car can be impounded if you are again caught doing a burnout within a 5 year period, even if driving a different car. Please share this post. Keep an eye out for Tip No. #4 on vehicle impoundment.
