Reporting Uninsured Vehicles

How would one go about doing so? I know of an out of province vehicle that's running around my neck of the woods and is without any form of insurance. It's also wanted by a bank/repo due to payments not being met.

Tried searching but didn't come up with anything useful. Would i just call the non-emergency police line?

911 if you see it being driven and non-emergency police line/parking by-law enforcement if you see it parked on public properties.

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

I actually have something similar but it's a co-worker at work. He is still in the process of taking the N road test but failed more than 4 times now. So he decided to practice driving to work everyday by himself. I feel somewhat uncomfortable to even park beside him. I talked to him personally about it but he doesn't seem to care and think it's ok to do so. Is there anything I can do?

Just call the police non-emergency line in that jurisdiction and let them know about it. If he has already failed 4 times he would be the last person I would want behind the wheel of a car.

Thanks for the speedy reply This is actually my first time reporting something like this to the police. What info do I need to report? I'm actually not even sure if the car is owned by the co-worker and he just immigranted here like 2-3 years ago and is renting a room with someone. Thanks.

I would have the basics in hand. So the following is probably a good start and is probably more than enough:

1) The car (model, make, year, colour)
2) License plate #
3) His name
4) Your workplace and hours of operation
5) And if it is routine, when he starts work and when he gets off.

Yeah I thought so. Sorry for another dumb question but since I havent made a purchase of a car myself yet, you do require a valid driver's license to be able to insure your vehicle right? let along buying a vehicle? Thanks.

No, you only need a valid driver's license to drive a vehicle.
