I am not sure exactly what happened or why it did but yesterday the Police in Manchester City Centre removed

the Licence plates from at least 3 Rossendale licenced vehicles outside Piccadilly Train Station.

Whether they were ''hackneys'' or ''ph'' I don't know.

Would be good to know why this happened.

Of course it's long overdue as these Rossis are working in Manchester with impunity and seem above

the law.

Sign at Manchester test center
A driver seen with a phone mounted on a holder on the vehicle windscreen will have their ''plates''
removed under a GV9 suspension notice and will have to get vehicle tested again
Could this be the reason for removal of plates in Manchester ?

I very much doubt it.

Removing the plate is a very extreme way to deal with any licensing law offence or breach of licensing condition.

If the vehicle isn't safe, then it should be put of the road. If the driver isn't safe then he should be removed from the vehicle.

Not saying I'm a fan of non local cars working predominately anywhere other than where they are licensed, but what we don't need are the police to imagine they have powers they don't actually have.

The Police could well have been assisting Licensing authorities in the matter...I am not sure
whether they acted alone or otherwise...

Removing of plate is down to the council and that is what they tell the police to do ..........they think that the plate is their property.....as I am charged separately for it I disagree..

Removing the plate is not Illegal...I have seen it done many times in Manchester....

The time before this was when the Licence plate had a different vehicle reg number to the reg number

on the vehicle ...simply because the driver had a personalised plate and changed it without informing

the council and getting a new licence plate.

I see 1000s of cars exceeding the speed limit every week.

Doesn't mean speeding has been legalised.
