UK road traffic legislation applies to everyone who use our roads irrespective of where the vehicle is registered.

It is for the Police to decide what action to take against foreign drivers detected committing criminal traffic offences. This may include impounding.

For traffic offences subject to civil enforcement, persistent evaders found in contravention may have their vehicles immobilised or removed. Some local authorities use international debt recovery agents to recover payment.
