Millionth uninsured vehicle seized

More than 1 million of the UK’s 34 million drivers are uninsured, figures show, with the West Midlands and West Yorkshire particular evasion hotspots

A freedom of information has shown that Manchester has the most disqualified drivers per capita which may have a knock on effect on the number of road traffic accident claims being made.

How many are uninsured?

Of the 34 million drivers in the UK, an estimated 1.2 million are uninsured.

Statistics show that 60% of the worst 20 postcodes in the UK are in the West Midlands.  Between January 2012 and July 2012, West Midlands police seized 5,881 uninsured vehicles which equates to 27 vehicles a day!

Which town has the most uninsured drivers?

In August 2012, the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) stated that Bordesley in Birmingham has the highest concentration of uninsured drivers, with 8 times the number of people driving vehicles without insurance compared to the national average.

What has AA insurance said?

Simon Douglas of AA Insurance said in August 2012:

“A million cars seized is great news, yet there are still an estimated 1.2m vehicles on Britain’s roads being driven without cover – that’s around 1 out of every 25.  We are still a long way from cleaning up Britain’s roads. In uninsured driver hotspots such as parts of Birmingham, innocent motorists are 8 times more likely than average to be hit by an uninsured vehicle.”  He said that driving without insurance is “not a victimless crime.”
