Nearly one-third of all young drivers have driven without insurance, and 13% think it is acceptable because “it doesn’t harm anyone” – according to the shocking findings of a new survey.
It is estimated that at any one time five percent - 1 in 20 - of drivers on British roads are uninsured.
Despite these figures, it is estimated that just 16% of the UK’s uninsured drivers are convicted every year.

Although there are the suggestions that police should have the power to sieze and destroy un-insured cars.

No, it's not justified but you can see why.

Pay a huge premium...... or don't bother, and if you do get caught, the fine is still way cheaper than getting insurance in the first place.

If there was a PROPER penalty for being uninsured, maybe more would pay up and everyone's premium could come down as a result - fat chance of it happening, but a nice idea.

There is a difference between a car being un-insured and a driver once in his life driving a car uninsured (for example a quick spin in a mates car on a quiet bit of road) which I'm sure many of us have done.
