MORE than 300 cars have been seized so far in a crackdown on drivers who are flouting the law.
Under new powers, in operation in the county since the end of February, police are now able to seize any car where the driver does not have insurance or a licence.
There is a 14-day period in which the cars can be reclaimed once the 'appropriate documentation' has been provided.
And if the cars are not claimed within this period then they are either crushed or sold at auction depending on their value.
