Some people never learn lol

 

Buy a car for £300, fill er full of red and if you're caught, let them take the car and buy another at £300. Even if you were caught once a year it still works out cheaper than buying clear diesel.

 

Whats the story with red diesel in england? Is it as big as it is here? Are there checkpoints set up round the country to catch people? Sorry for my stupidity, i'm just a thick paddy :P

Red diesel is illegal in England too, but rarely checked

 

 

I dont get the £3607 part? Does that mean that between 7 people paying to get their cars back they had to part with £3607?

 

I thought the recovery from impound fee was only 100 quid or something?

 

He's in Ireland Craig, law is different

I don't get what your complaining about? Looks like a bunch of idiots were caught speeding/no insurance etc. ?

 

who's complaining? i'm glad to see some dangerous scrap off the road. i too learned the hard way after a 15 month ban.

 

i don't agree with all the cars getting lifted for running on red diesel though. the tax on clear is extortionate!
