Motorists in the UK without car insurance have been described by an industry body as "a massive problem".

The British Insurance Brokers' Association's (BIBA's) technical and corporate affairs executive Graeme Trudgill has said that around two million people currently drive without cover.

He also explained that such people are also costing sensible and responsible motorists around £400 million a year.

"Everyone that has car insurance is paying £30 to a levy for the victims of uninsured drivers and we want to reduce that," he explained.

"We want to prevent dangerous uninsured drivers and there will be a new enforcement agency next year which BIBA has been working with the government on."

A study by the Motor Insurers' Bureau last year found that uninsured drivers are ten times more likely to have a drink driving conviction than those who have cover.

It was also revealed that such people are also more likely to be driving a vehicle that can be described as unsafe.
