Mask, or no mask, just a scenario.

What if, some individual, had an old working conveyance, and a newer working conveyance, and the newer of the two conveyances, was refused insurance due to a third party claim. But the registerred keeper of both conveyances decided to swap the registration plates of the vehicles because the conveyance that was refused insurance, was the more mechanically safer and more asthetically pleasing to the eye, no rust, not looking worn out,etc. But still had insurance on the registration plate and also tax and mot. would the individual be in breach of contractual agreements and therefore, would not be acting lawfully. I am pretty sure it would be illegal in the legal sense, but if the vehicle had been mot,d with the masked identity, and proven to be roadworthy. So whom would be at a loss if there was no harm and injury incurred. Is it not the same as deregisterring a conveyance. This is just a scenario of course.

Of course :wink: My insurance policy document lists the make and model and colour of my car, though, as well as the reg number. Presumably "the scenario" would work for as long as it took an eagle-eyed copper in a ANPR-enabled patrol car to spot that what should be a grey Vauxhall Astra looks remarkably like a red Nissan Primera and suddenly you've got A LOT of explaining to do...

But what if both conveyances were identical model and colour, just one was older and on its last legs, so to speak.

what if it had the exact same make model colour AND reg plate as the car registered to a traffic warden and was driven through speed cameras enough times to clock up a high score on the traffic wardens behalf :giggle:

Wouldnt it be less hassle to just run a traffic enforcement officer down, utilizing a conveyance with a masked identity. But that would cause loss and harm and injury, no doubt, but would be highly satisfying non the less, but this is just a scenario, remember.

This scenario, has already concluded with the individual who set the question, so there can be no recourse. I posted the scenario, just to find out wot you would do, if you knowingly embarked on a similar course of action. legal/lawful.
