Motorists who leave their cars uninsured face fines of up to £1,000 even if they are locked away in a garage or kept on a driveway.

Good spot Lee, but that is a totally rediculous concept!

As stated in there, it is only a legal requirement to have insurance if you are driving the vehicle...so if your not, then its not nesseccary!

Secondly, this carp about 160 deaths by uninsured drivers every year is rubbish, not having insurance doesn't mean that you can't drive...it means you don't want to be bum raped of a rediculous sum of money every year!...How about comparing it to the number of deaths caused by insured drivers every year....I'm sure that will make it seem less likely to kill some-one if you are uninsured!!!!!!

And as for having to SORN a vehicle and keep it off the road if it is not insured...that is stupid aswell...as the article points out, 57% of people in the UK don't have anywhere to keep a SORN'd car...so if you are taken ill etc then you are stuffed....impounded...just like that.

As usual some total tool sat in an office somewhere is trying really hard to earn his £250,000 this year.
