Don’t get caught out by new legalislation to crackdown on uninsured motorists !
20th June 2011 sees the biggest single change to compulsory third party motor insurance since the advent of the Road Traffic Act
The goal of Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) is to reduce the number of motorists that drive uninsured. The latest estimates suggest that around 1.4 million people in the UK are driving without compulsory third party insurance and that uninsured drivers are costing honest motorists an estimated £500 million in extra premiums.
The new law means that it will be an offence not to insure a vehicle even if it is kept on private property and not being used. The possible consequence for ignoring the legislation ranges from a £100 fine to having a vehicle seized and destroyed. The only exception will be vehicles that have a valid Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN)
