Blitz on motorists.

A CRACKDOWN has been launched against disqualified and anti-social drivers in a South Wales town.

The police operation will see officers targeting known disqualified drivers and their vehicles, carrying out routine checks and dealing with anyone caught driving while disqualified.

Penarth neighbourhood police sergeant Julie Madoc said: "We are targeting persistent offenders - those people who are not just uninsured but who are uninsurable.

"Some individuals believe it is their right to drive.

"If you do not have a valid licence or you have already been disqualified from driving you have no right to be on the road.

"If your vehicle is not taxed, not registered or not insured it should not be on the road. Be warned: we will remove the vehicle with or without the co-operation of the driver. If you can't produce up-to-date vehicle documentation, it will be crushed."
