2,300 cars seized in Fingal

Friday, February 23, 2018

Gardai seized almost 2,300 cars in Fingal last year. The figures were included in the annual Garda reports at the recent Fingal Joint Policing Committee meeting.

Under section 41 of the Road Traffic Act cars can be seized for a number of reasons from
​not being insur​ed,​ ​not having an NCT certificate or being used to commit a criminal offence. 
That's over 6 per day which is quite astonishing. It just goes to show how many problem vehicles are 
​still ​
on our roads. 

In general crime levels are beginning to drop as more resources are deployed in the county. The increase in burglaries has been halted but acts of criminal damage are up and theft from vehicles continues to increase as thieves find an easy outlet for stolen tools.

This year I'm calling on fuel retailers to take a more proactive approach to fuel thefts. Last year there were 1072 instances of drive offs at filling stations. The 
​two ​
Applegreen stations on the M1 accounted most of the 409 incidents in the Balbriggan district, an increase of 83%, while Blanchardstown recorded 392 drive offs, up 67% on 2016.
