Measures to Deter Uninsured Drivers


Visitors: 195

Few motorists are aware of the Motor Insurer's Bureau's crack down on uninsured drivers. The United Kingdom has one of the highest levels of uninsured driver's in Europe with, it is estimated, over one million uninsured cars on the roads. However under 25% of these drivers are identidfied and successfully prosecuted which the Motor Insurer's Bureau feels is insufficient. The Bureau is hoping that prosecutions will rise to help deter drivers from using their vehicles without valid car insurance.

The crackdown against uninsured drivers includes:

Penalties - Penalties are being increased in the fight against driving without insurance. This will see fines increase and the crushing of cars owned by convicted uninsured drivers.

Cameras - Camera technology already in use can now automatically check that the car had valid insurance. This will save the police plenty of paperwork.

Details - Legislation in place which allows the Motor Insurer's Bureau to pass on to the police the details of any driver it suspect of driving without insurance. This will result in the conviction of lots more uninsured drivers.

New Technology - Finally the development of new technology such as the roadside cameras and specialised hand held equipment will act as vital tools for the police. Speed cameras are even being handed out to Community Roadside Watch organisations.

The Motor Insurer's Bureau wants to make it perfectly clear to all the drivers currently using the roads without valid car insurance that the odds of avoiding detection are getting shorter. provides great deals on car insurance for its clients in the uk.
