POLICE are warning motorists that driving without insurance could lead to your vehicle being seized, plus fines and penalty points on your licence.

The warning comes after a two-vehicle collision at Harp Road in South Petherton at 8.40am on Tuesday, December 4.

Although nobody was injured in the collision, the 22-year-old driver of one of the cars - who is a Polish national - was arrested on suspicion of careless driving and driving with no insurance.

He was later charged with both offences and has had his vehicle seized until he can provide proper insurance documents for it.

The man also now faces an appearance at South Somerset Magistrates Court on Monday, December 17, to answer the charges.

PC Peter Wilson, from the Yeovil's road policing unit, said: "'Drivers who risk driving without insurance cause enormous amounts of misery for people who suffer personal injury or damage to their property.

"If they are caught, as well as being prosecuted where they can face fines and penalty points, we will seize uninsured vehicles and make sure they are not used on the road again until proper insurance is provided."
