Police in Fife have seized more than 500 vehicles which were being driven illegally over the past six months.
Uncollected cars which have been seized are sent to the crusher
Road safety teams launched a crackdown on illegal cars in last August. Drivers caught without tax or insurance have since had their vehicles removed.
A charge of £105 is made for the cars to be returned and those not collected have been sent to be crushed.
Fixed penalty tickets are also issued and can come with a £200 fine and six penalty points on a driving licence.
Head of Roads Policing, Chief Insp Alex Duncan said: "Although this is positive pro-active work on our part, it is more importantly a sad reflection that people out there are continuing to take risks and are driving without a valid certificate of motor insurance or licence.
"We want to highlight to all motorists that if they do not comply to the road traffic law, then you run the risk of some pretty steep and costly consequences."
