Technically, road tax was abolished in 1937 and replaced by Vehicle Excise Duty.

It is in fact a tax on vehicles, but it might be classified as a pollution tax, since it's now based on the size of engine and emissions.

Ultra-low emissions vehicles are exempted.

Drivers can be fined between £80 - £1,000 for not paying the tax.

Police seized the Lamborghini in New York Road in Leeds.
