There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of car insurance dodgers.
They not only cost the honest people higher premiums, but they drive their cars without insurance and if they have an accident the innocent party has no claim and we lose out once more.
The police have no instant way of knowing if a car is insured or not.
There is a simple way to overcome this problem.
If it was made compulsory for every insurance company to issue an insurance disk with an expiry date on it and it was also compulsory for everyone to display this disk on their windscreen.
The police would know instantly if a car was insured or not. This would be a big deterrent to the insurance dodgers.
It would take legislation for this to happen. Perhaps our local members of parliament could present a private members bill to this affect.
