Police Impound Car

I was stopped for having no car insurance. The Police have now impounded my car. Are they entitled to do this? Yes. The Police now have facilities to check insurance cover at the road side. If for any reason you are unable to prove the vehicle is insured, the Police are entitled to remove it from the road and charge you for the cost of transporting and storing the vehicle. Having removed the vehicle, the Police are entitled to scrap it if you do not reclaim it within 14 days by producing evidence or valid insurance.
