Insurance & convicted
- New rules, restrictions and regulations are leading to more and
more drivers being stripped of their license than ever before.
With more and more drivers being jammed into ever-decreasing road
space, and every bump these days being attributed to careless
driving rather than an accident, it is no wonder people are totting
up the points on their licenses and receiving driving bans for
months and sometimes years.
Seatbealts and mobile phones are now another area where drivers have
been warned they will be punished if they flout the rules, but
neither rake in the kind of numbers still being snared by speed
cameras. Both mobile and fixed cameras are still leading to drivers
being convicted and losing their licenses for speeding on the roads.
While many motorists are dismayed to find the fines sitting on their
doorsteps, it is the hike in insurance prices that provide the real
shock when they are once again allowed to get behind the wheel.
Nowadays, however, there are a number of insurance deals out there
for convicted drivers and make no mistake, getting back onto the
road without insurance will be viewed as serious, if not more so, as
drink driving by the courts.
