Vehicle Interference, Tampering with a Motor Vehicle
The offence of vehicle interference is closely connected with dishonesty offences, due to the intention of the alleged offender. The offence is defined by Section 9 of the Criminal Attempts Act 1981.
If you are accused of vehicle interference, the Prosecution must prove that:
- You have been physically interfering with a motor vehicle, trailer, or anything carried on a motor vehicle or trailer, and intended to either
The offence of vehicle interference is a summary only offence, and so can only be dealt with by the Magistrates Court. The maximum sentence is 3 months imprisonment, but unless damage is caused to the vehicle a Community Order is a more likely sentence.
