    Naas Roads Policing impounded this car on the R409 in Caragh earlier after a check on the Mobility Device revealed that car had not been taxed for 2318 days Proceedings commenced
    That's 6 years and 4 months!

    I assume he was going to the drift masters event, hes an idiot if so as the area around Mondello is always swarming with cops when events like that are on

      10-12k in back tax if it’s all under his tenure as owner. That’s enough to get your name published in the tax defaulters list.

        So it took six years to catch him?

          Perhaps future computer science breakthroughs will help to cut that database lookup time for untaxed cars to mere months.

            Was it declared off the road for any of that time, cos they may have just been unlucky and had it out for an Italian tune....

              Fair play to him. We get nothing in return for our ridiculous motor tax. It’s not like we have the alternative Of regular and punctual public transport.

                I'm nearly certain that was for sale a few weeks ago. If the current owner just bought it they shouldn't be liable for any arrears.

                  Got done in Naas myself at the weekend. Tax out since Oct. I'd expected to change cars in Jan and decided to risk 2 months. Then forgot about it and here we are (a wee fine, not a flatbed).

                  It would be a slightly less credible story for this poor unfortunate!

                      I reckon you did well to get let off with fine; Guard must have been having a good day!

                        It’s normal enough just go in and get it flatbedded out of the Garda station and decide to “sell it” tax for 3 months and then go on the dodge again. It’s clearly worth it. People wouldn’t bother if the bill tax was actually any bit reasonable on stuff like that. Many a supra was converted to a van back in the day because of it.

                          I thought you needed to pay the fine and the tax before it’s released? But if you can avoid paying the tax then sure just keep trucking for another six years or whatever.

                            No, only just the fine and impound fee if you take it out if the compound with a recovery truck, jeep and trailer etc.

                            ​Got mine siezed a couple of years ago after the winter when took it for a short run before the nct the following week. As tax was out since previous summer and nct out a few weeks, they took it which was fair enough.

                            Paid the fine the next morning and took it home with the Defender and transporter.


                            Considering we get feckall for our taxes these days and roads are in absolute shite, it's almost worth rolling the dice really for cars that are only occasionally driven to he honest given a impound fee plus fine is still less than the price of tax per month on the highest co2 tax band

                              that's the car but owner still has it. He doesn't have it for the full six years it wasn't taxed though as far as I know. Galway seems abit easier to get away without it though. Mine wasn't taxed for two or three years before I bought it and was in Galway too
