EU rules that uninsured drivers must be compensated if they have accidents

A ruling by the EU means that uninsured motorists will have to be paid compensation if they are involved in a car accident.

The ruling is likely to push up insurance premiums for law abiding drivers who will now be paying to insure the vehicles of those who don't bother.

UKIP Transport spokesman, Jill Seymour MEP, said:
This scheme is using the money of honest premium-paying motorists to compensate those who are blatantly breaking the law – everything about it is totally wrong.
