Written by The Newsroom on November 7, 2019
A rider out on his new £1,000 scooter for the very first time had it seized by police because he had no licence or insurance.
The hapless owner had patiently saved up enough money to buy his first scooter, only for it to be snatched away by the Staffordshire Police Road Policing Unit .
Eager to take the vehicle out for his first ride in the Cannock area , he had not yet obtained a full UK driving licence or insurance.
He had spent £1000 on the brand new black and red scooter.
Staffordshire Police Road Policing Unit spotted the uninsured vehicle at 12.46pm in Rugeley Road in Hednesford.
Today, (November 7) a spokesman for the force tweeted: “So this rider patiently saved up a £1000 to buy his first form of transport.
“Only to lose it to the police on his first ride as he couldn’t wait to get a driving licence or any insurance. What was he thinking? #oplightning again in the Cannock area.”
No arrests have been made.
