TWO Local Police cars in Spain have been spotted driving around with expired ITVs – the Spanish equivalent of the British MOT.
Half the fleet of the Pobla de Vallbona Local Police was circulating with their Technical Vehicle Inspection (ITV) expired it is claimed.
A photograph of one of the vehicles was published in the Levante-EMV newspaper that said the vehicles should have been re-tested last December.
But the town mayor of Vallbona, Josep Vicent García, disputed the newspaper report saying: “I’m very surprised at what you say, which is false … well, I do not know if it was circulating or standing still.”
The penalty for driving a vehicle without a current ITV is €200 – issued by the Local Police!
