BRITANNIA DRIVING SCHOOL MAINTAINS THAT LAW-ABIDING DRIVERS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY THE BILL FOR UNINSURED MOTORIST

UK Drivers are paying, on average, £31 a year more on their car insurance in order to cover for people who are uninsured, equating to more than £500m nationwide. The average fine for getting caught driving without insurance in the UK is just £250.
Britannia Driving School believes the Government needs to take action to reduce the number of illegal drivers on Britain’s road through more severe penalties.
Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School remarks: “It is high time the Government took decisive action on this problem. The average penalty for an uninsured driving offence is a fraction of the cost of a year’s car insurance, incentivising law-breaking. Motorists have had enough of footing the bill for uninsured drivers.
It’s clear that any deterrent to the problem of uninsured drivers in the UK would be welcome. It’s a major problem in this country and it’s an unfortunate consequence that legal drivers have to bear the cost of this type of crime.
Awareness of the potential penalties needs to be increased so it makes drivers think twice before taking to the road uninsured.”
