Call for tougher sentences on Uninsured drivers

Transport minister Stephen Ladyman has called for tougher sentences on uninsured drivers. It is estimated that there are currently up to 2 million uninsured drivers on Britain's roads and they account for 1 in 10 accidents.

If caught drivers currently get an average of 6 points on their license and a fine of £250 and this low penalty means that younger drivers in particular whose annual insurance is likely to be several times this fine, think that it is worth the risk.

The problem comes when an accident occurs. These uninsured drivers are more likely to leave the scene of an accident as they don't want to wait for the police to turn up and find they are uninsured.

Ladyman also stated in his interview that a loophole in the law allows individuals who have comprehensive insurance cover for any car turning up to collect impounded cars on behalf of their uninsured owners. He cited the case of one individual who had allegedly done this over 60 times.
