    but it needs to be in a specific place,

    let the tyre down remove it undamaged, and claim you needed to feed up, contact your MP.

    or just pay up?

    They could check for valid insurance from your number plate.

    Pay up and move on

    is the tax disc in the window ? no its in the office

    4 bits of tape would more than last a year holding the disc in the window

    probably best not make a fuss they might start asking questions about lights ,brakes and the condition of your trailers

    Well, that's a good end to this tale.... not the fact that you paid up & lesson learnt....... but only had to use one bit of tape.

    Just last week I stuck my tax disc to the window after it being behind the seat for the last 6 months! After reading this I'm glad I did!

    But you were in the wrong! Pay up and learn( glad you did) the law is an ass but at least they probably caught a few untaxed vehicles that day as well as your taxed vehicle

    But all they need do to catch an untaxed vehicle is to read the numberplate with a camera from a distance. The actual act of displaying the disc in the window is a throwback to a bygone age. But it is easy money-making. In fact it is even easier than that, because if a tax is not renewed an automatic fine is imposed on the owner/keeper for not doing so.

    Re: Tractor wheel clamped!!!

    Did we ever establish if the tractor was on private land? If so,why pay a release fee for an illegal clamp?

    Not it wasn't on private land, it was within 1meter of the white line on edge of road and not on private drive so was fair game!
