DRIVERS need to ensure foreign vehicles are registered, the Local Government Association has said.
It comes after The News reported last year that Portsmouth City Council was left £140,000 out of pocket due to overseas drivers and migrant workers.
LGA economy and transport board chairman Peter Box said: ‘Drivers of foreign-registered vehicles need to realise they are not above the law in this country.
‘Reckless and inconsiderate parking by non-UK registered vehicles puts other drivers and pedestrians at risk. The millions of pounds worth of fines written off could also be spent filling potholes, providing bus services and tackling the £12 billion repair backlog to bring our roads up to scratch.’
