Warning issued to Donegal drivers over new regulations on UK car imports

first_imgDrivers who plan on importing a vehicle from the UK, including Northern Ireland, have been issued a stark warning about new regulations that stops them from transferring vehicles into Donegal legally. Under new British law, the seller of an exported vehicle must dispose of the logbook before it is exported to another country and instead issue buyers with a new owner certificate.However, for drivers in Donegal and across the country, revenue will not accept the vehicle registration tax (VRT) without the logbook unless you have a certificate of permanent export, which the DVLA have stopped issuing since January 2019. Speaking to Donegal Daily, Councillor Paul Canning said: “The situation at the minute is if you went across to England and bought a vehicle, the seller can get away with just giving you a new owner certificate, scrapping the logbook.“There is now a law in the UK that any vehicle going for export, sellers must dispose of the logbook,” he added.“But if you go to the DVLA in the UK with no logbook or a V5C form, they will not issue a certificate of permanent export, so I urge potential buyers to make sure they have that documentation in their hand when they leave or you are not getting VRT.”The Inishowen Councillor said that people have already been in touch with him about the issue, which is leaving them having to pay more high costs on the vehicle. “There have been a few people in my area that have contacted me on this issue, not a whole lot, but it is a lot of money for a few people.”“For instance, there was a woman who has contacted me recently who employed a company to lift a vehicle in the UK and they brought it back here with a new owner certificate.“The VRT on it was €3000, but because the vehicle is now in this country, she can’t get it back again.“And this is a big concern around border areas and areas close to the border, including Carrigans, Killea, Newton, Bridgend and Muff.“The problem is people buy the car and the sellers say they will send you on the logbook but they instead send you a new owner certificate when people have bought and paid for the car. “So people need to be aware of this and take caution when importing cars across the border.”Warning issued to Donegal drivers over new regulations on UK car imports was last modified: February 28th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:car taxDonegal carsImported carsVRTlast_img read more

A Woman Tries to Fool Her Probation Officer by Forging a Prescription for Medicinal Meth

first_imgShe claimed it was prescribed by her doctor, and even had a pill bottle with a fake label that said it contained 5-milligram methamphetamine pills. Unfortunately for Ginger, her probation officer didn’t buy it.  So now she’s facing more forgery charges. A 34-year-old woman in Albuquerque, New Mexico named Ginger Sharpe had to take a drug test last month as part of her probation stemming from forgery charges last year. I don’t know if you have to be on drugs to come up with an idea like this.  But you definitely need to be on drugs to think it would work . . . And when she tested positive for meth, she tried to convince her probation officer that it was MEDICINAL meth.last_img

first_imgMessi: Ajax pair De Ligt and De Jong could handle Barcelonaby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBarcelona ace Leo Messi is backing their move for Ajax pair Mattihjs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong.Messi, who spoke to Marca, highlighted the level of both. “They come from a school very similar to our own. There they work in practically the same way. They play like us, having the ball, possession, good feet, they are young players with a lot of precision. Two very good players,” said Messi.The Barca forward also said the club should keep betting on their youth academy, La Masia. “It’s important to go back to betting on the boys from the youth academy, giving them a chance. They need to see it’s not impossible to climb and reach the first team. I think that in the future Barca can play with 11 homegrown players because we have a great youth academy, but it will take its time.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

The Price Of Seeing Derek Jeters Last MLB Game

Derek Jeter, a regionally popular player for a local New York ball club, announced his retirement in February, presaging the end to 20 seasons in Major League Baseball.I’ll leave it to the sports desk to discuss the actual performance of Jeter, but one effect the announcement had was a meteoric rise in the price of tickets to both his last game at Yankee Stadium, this Thursday, and his last, last game, in Boston this Sunday.And while they’re not mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, the Yankees are what we in the statistics community call “pretty boned, all things considered.” So, it’s reasonable to expect that Sunday will be Jeter’s final game in the majors.We’ve seen a steady increase in recent weeks in the price of tickets sold on the secondary market StubHub. Here’s the day-by-day average sale-price data it sent us, starting Dec. 1 and going through the spike in February and up to Friday:Here’s the game in Boston: read more

San Diego County uses new strategy to close illegal pot shops

In the past, the county would send cease-and-desist letters and impose fines, but often, the businesses would re-open their operations just days or even hours later.By putting the pressure on building owners, Lieutenant Tom Seiver of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said this approach has led to more consistent results. In the last month, the county has been able to close down four illegal dispensaries through the ten-day notice of abatement.One of those was a dispensary which was robbed at gunpoint in April. Seiver indicated that the dispensaries are a magnet for violent crime. In 2017, the Sheriff’s Department said eight illegal dispensaries in Spring Valley were robbed.The county’s strategy of targeting landlords is winning good reviews from the legal cannabis industry.Lincoln Fish, who runs the Outlier Collective in unincorporated El Cajon, close to Gillespie Field said the black market operators don’t pay taxes and sell a product that hasn’t been tested to guarantee the cannabis is free of contaminants and harmful pesticides.He said the illegal shops are giving the legal cannabis industry a bad name.“We’re trying to raise the profile. We’re trying to show a level of professionalism, that I think we need,” Fish said.Lieutenant Seiver estimated there are about 12 illegal dispensaries currently operating in Spring Valley. He said the county was able to close down six shops so far in 2018.“As we move on, pretty much every week we should see another dispensary being closed down,” Seiver said.
