Uninsured Driver Hotspots Provoke Warning from Motor Trade Insurance Company

ESSEX, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2010) - The UK's worst offending towns for driving without insurance have been revealed by the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB), with Barkerend in Bradford taking pole position for the most uninsured motorists.

Barkerend's residents may be at ease with driving around without cover - along with runners-up, West Gorton, Small Heath, Handsworth and Saltley – but Motor Trade Insurance specialists, DNA Insurance warn that in doing so they are not only putting themselves at risk.

Russell Seex of DNA Insurance, commented: 'It is seemingly an unfortunate consequence of difficult financial times that unscrupulous drivers avoid the cost of insurance. This selfish attitude is putting all motorists and pedestrians at risk and inflates insurance premiums for the conscientious majority.'

Aside from the fact that it is completely illegal to do so, driving without adequate insurance puts other road users in a predicament in the event of an accident, even if they have bought an insurance policy and can lead to a lot of expense and trouble with the law for uninsured drivers.

However, it is not all bad news, as DNA Insurance were pleased to learn that although the research by the MIB has revealed the top towns for uninsured drivers, the numbers are dwindling on the whole. In fact, there has been a 20% reduction in the number of uninsured vehicles on the roads over the past four years. This takes numbers from an estimated 1.8 million to 1.5 million.

It would appear that although the recession has meant most households are budgeting and make cutbacks on their expenditure, they are choosing not to risk anything with their insurance policies in order to perhaps avoid a bigger payout in the future.

DNA state that this is advice worth all sensible motorists noting. They provide a wide range of policies for drivers and motor traders and it is now easier than ever to obtain a Motor Trade Insurance Quote online, so there is simply no reason why people should be driving unsafely on the roads.
