An up-date, The cars are still on the road! they are still showing the out of date tax discs and the DVLA/Police haven't been done the street to act of the information I have given them. I know this as I'm currently house bound from a back operation and can see the cars leaving every morning with the people going to and from work. So what the point of being a responsible person of the community and reporting stuff that's not right and nothing getting done about it! I had a situation about 5 weeks ago when 4 youth broke into a yard and started to smash up a builders yard, luckily I had the owners number as I've done business with him in the past, I rang him up and said the following :-
ME:- Hi Mr XXXXX It's Mr XXXX from XXXX
MR X:- Hello How can I help you today?
ME:- I live near to your yard and 4 youths have broke in and are smashing up some of your stock! you better get down here quick. I'm going to call the police after calling you.
MR X:- Don't call the police, it takes them 15 minutes to arrive as they have to come from XXXX as the local police station is closed on a weekend.
ME:- OH Crap! better get here quick them.
End of call.
I then rang the police who in fact did turn up before the owner and arrest the 4 youth for breaking and entering, criminal damage, and i think 5 other offences. I got a knock on the door the next day from the guy at the builders yard who thanked me for calling him as it saved him alot of money as it turned out the youths also had started a fire in part of the yard which could have turned nasty.
I think another call to the police tomorrow or maybe a call to the DVLA again might get them to act, but then again who knows.
Will keep you informed.
