100s of uninsured cars seized

In an annual bid to remove uninsured drivers from London’s streets, Operation Cubo hits London again

The operation involves over 1200 officers using automatic number plate technology (ANPR) to catch uninsured vehicles. The vehicles are either auctioned off to raise money or crushed into cubes for scrap.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe said “We knew that around 80% of uninsured drivers are criminals and are more likely to be involved in crashes”. One notable car seized was a bright orange £200k Ferrari FF seized from a 28-year-old man in South Kensington.
