Nearly thirty drivers were stopped and charged during a seven-hour operation in Northampton on Thursday.
A dedicated police operation seeking to stop criminals using the roads identified 28 different offences during a seven-hour period in Northampton.
Police joined colleagues including the DVSA, HMRC and taxi licensing for the targeted operation in London Road, Northampton. An ANPR camera was also deployed.
Offences identified included defective tyres, expired MOTs and driving without insurance. A total of seven vehicles were taken off the road, including one (pictured) which was allegedly using red fuel as well as having defective tyres.
PC Chris Gray, from the Safer Roads Team, said: “This was part of Operation Trivium, a Europe-wide campaign to tackle mobile criminality. We identified a range of offences over a short period of time and managed to take a number of vehicles off the road.”
