New offence will tighten the net on uninsured drivers says ABI

Commenting on today's announcement by the Government of the introduction of an offence to make it illegal to keep an uninsured vehicle, rather than just to drive when uninsured, Nick Starling, the ABI's Director of General Insurance and Health, said:

"We urge the Government to introduce this new offence as quickly as possible to drive the menace of uninsured driving from our roads. Uninsured drivers are not only flouting the law, but are much more likely to cause a crash. The insurance industry has been working hard with the Government and the police on measures that have seen a growing number of uninsured drivers being caught. This new offence will further tighten the net on uninsured drivers."
