Gardaí in Convoy have seized a car which has out-of-date tax for the past eight years.
The Donegal Roads Policing Unit stopped this people carrier this week, which was last taxed in 2010.
Road tax is a legal requirement of all motorists who drive their vehicles in a public place. Not only are you obliged by law to pay motor tax to drive your vehicle, you are also required to display evidence that you have paid (that is, a current tax disc) on the windscreen of your vehicle.
Failure to display a current tax disc on your vehicle is considered a motoring offence and will result in a fine.
In this case, the car was seized, and Gardai have shared details of the case on Twitter today.
