UNINSURED DRIVER CRISIS. Law cracking down on culprits.

A crackdown on uninsured drivers has seen total fines hit £5 million in 2 years, according to the Motor Insurers' Bureau.

The rise is due to the introduction of the Continuous Insurance Enforcement. This states that cars must be insured even if they are not being driven, or declared off the road. Since this was put in place, police have been seizing as many as 2,500 cars a week! Owners have 14 days to reclaim a seized vehicle, and must be able to prove that the car is theirs, they can pay the recovery fee and have valid insurance. If not, the car can be crushed or sold at auction by the police force that seized it.
