Uninsured motorists cost insurers around 500 million pounds a year
According to one of the big car insurance comparison sites on Elephant.co.uk, uninsured motorists cost insurers around 500 million pounds a year.
The problem is that this huge cost translates into higher premiums for motorists who do have insurance and they are the ones who are really paying for the bill.
Uninsured drivers can also face large fines if the police discover they are not insured and can also impound your vehicle.
