UK Motorists Against Proposed Insurance Law sign now

If you are unaware of the recent change in UK car insurance law, then I suggest you read the BBC news article http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4295834.stm to get a better idea of what this petition is aiming for.

This law will only affect law abiding motorists, and not the target group (uninsured motorists).

They plan to send out fines to motorists (named drivers of the uninsured vehicles) who do not sign a statutory off road notification.

The law also entitles the removal of uninsured vehicles from private property (i.e. Garages, land, driveways, back gardens, etc) if a statutory off road notification has not been filed.

My view on this law:

As a motorist, and car enthusiast, i find this to be nothing more than a dig at law abiding drivers. I am always taxed, insured, MOT'd, licensed, yet I have to do all the paperwork!

This will not help towards getting uninsured drivers off the road by way of sending out fines to drivers whose name is on the logbook. Because the target group, people who are not insured, are 'criminals' and have never had their name on a cars log book, therefore they are not, and never will be on the system to be able to send them a fine.


The second point i would like to make is that if an individual is entitled to drive an uninsured vehicle (car traders, mechanics etc), when the vehicles number plate is recognised by SPECS or TFL cameras, a fine will automatically be sent out to whoever the vehicle owner is, even though the person driving the vehicle is entitled to do so.

This is going to be a massive drain on tax payers, and will take up more police time, which in turn means that more serious crimes will not be dealt with. It will also be yet another burden on the law abiding motorists who will be obligated to acquire, complete, and send a form to the DVLA each time they want to SORN a car or re-instate it as roadworthy/insured.

The worst thing about all this, is that SORN cars will continue to be driven on the road by the criminals! Because they don't care! It just means WE, the law abiding motorist, who is already paying towards a tax that does not fix the road, a congestion charge that does not reduce congestion, will ultimately get fined for someone elses negligence and choice to drive illegally!

Please sign the petition, Motorists in the UK already have a hard enough time with speed humps, speed cameras, potholes, congestion charges, high tax, high insurance, high fuel prices etc

Your vote counts! Even if it won't change the law, It will make me feel better that i am not the only one who disagrees with this, and may even make the government aware that their news law is riddled with inaccuracies that do not make sense.
