Why the Uninsured Drivers Agreement 1999 needs to be scapped

My February 2013 opinion piece: Asleep at the Wheel.

For cutting edge commentary

Campaign to reform 

 

The relevant statutory and extra-statutory provision relating to third party motor insurance is systemically defective.  It is not possible to determine the right of insurers or third party victims from the words used. This lack of precision is bad for victims and for insurers alike. What is needed is a complete overhaul. Nicholas has been campaigning for reform in this area since 2013.

 

Reforming third party motor insurance

  1. We need Part VI of the Road Traffic Act 1988, The EC Rights Against Insurers Regulations 2002, The Motor Vehicles (Compulsory Insurance) (Information Centre and Compensation Body) Regulations 2003 and the three private law agreements between the Secretary of State and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau to be replaced by a Modern Transport Act that codifies the provision for third party motor accident victims.

     

    We also need to encourage a better dialogue between the government, motor insurers and claimant representatives on the need reform and the form it should take. What level of compensatory redress can we afford?

     

  1. Third party cover must meet the minimum standards of compensatory protection for victims of motor vehicle users required under European law. This is likely to continue to influence UK law in the years ahead, even post Brexit.
