Highest vehicle tax evasion areas revealed in DVLA clampdown
The DVLA is running a new vehicle tax campaign targeting areas of the country where evasion is highest.
The campaign – focused on the ‘tax it or lose it’ message – is being run in 11 areas, based on 2018 data on enforcement actions:
|Area||Clamped||Fines or Penalties||Totals|
The advertising campaign focuses on the consequences of not taxing vehicles – from financial penalties to court action to clamping and finally the loss of a car.
DVLA head of enforcement Tim Burton said: “It’s never been easier to tax your car, so there really is no excuse. We would rather not have to clamp or remove vehicles, but this campaign highlights the consequences of not taxing a vehicle. Having your vehicle clamped is expensive and inconvenient – and you could end up losing your car.”
