Never saw this before......
« on: June 23, 2018, 12:12:22 AM »
Today I was travelling from Portadown towards Armagh and about two mile before Richill the DVA vans were parked at the side of the road and they had stopped a selection of vehicles.

The officials in their high viz jackets appeared to be questioning the drivers of these vehicles which had been pulled onto the hard shoulder while heading in both directions.

The strange thing was that virtually all of the approximately ten vehicles had their front driver side wheels  clamped with the drivers still sitting in them!

The vehicles included cars, vans, an articulated lorry and trailer and a motor bike.

No more vehicles were being stopped and they didn't seem to have any police with them as far as I could see there were no police vehicles. 

It wasn't the dippers.

Seemed to be similar to the way cars are clamped on the street in Belfast if found to to be taxed but these vehicles had been stopped and the drivers were still in them.

Strange.

Road tax. I believe the DVA tax camera vans are out and about in Armagh at the moment.

I drive that road 5 days a week and the tax camera is routinely there. Dippers are rare.

Have you ever seen vehicles pulled in and clamped with their drivers still in them?

That's the way to deal with Nordies who won't pay for anything ;)

Not with drivers in them, that is very strange. I have seen some clamped and sitting by the roadside.

Bailed out a bank. To save a British bank from going under.

A shower of b**tards bailed another shower of b**tards. Nothing to do with any of us, except that we're all paying for it.
