Government cracks down on uninsured drivers

| June 20, 2011 | 0 Comments

With immediate effect, motorists will be forced to declare if their car is off the road if they want to avoid buying insurance.

The measures are part of the Government’s efforts to clamp down on uninsured motorists.

In the past, drivers had to be caught driving with no insurance to be charged and prosecuted.

From today, drivers with a car off the road must issue a statutory off-road notification – the same rule applies to this who do not wish to pay road tax.

Registered drivers who are found to be uninsured will be sent a warning letter, followed by a £100 fine.

However, if the car remains uninsured, further action could include clamping, or the car could be seized and destroyed.

According to the Department for Transport, around 23,000 are injured every year in accidents involving uninsured motorists.
