Driver Fined For Driving Vehicle With Red Diesel

North Warwickshire Police Safer Neighbourhood Team members PCSO FRETTER and PC KINSELLA conducted a joint operation with HMIC on 28th January 2018. An address in Atherstone was attended and checks were conducted which confirmed a vehicle contained red diesel in its fuel tank. The driver swiftly admitted to having drove the vehicle with red diesel inside and gave the excuse that he believed that it was ok to drive on 50% ordinary diesel and 50% red diesel. The driver was advised accordingly and issued with a £550 on the spot fine. This is the result of excellent partnership working to achieve a positive outcome.
