Uninsured vehicles in South Yorkshire are being put on display in Sheffield to shame the drivers who've failed to get cover.
Uninsured drivers kill 160 people and injure 23,000 every year according to the Motor Insurers' Bureau. They also add around £30 a year to every honest motorist's insurance premium, amounting to more than £500m a year in costs to the UK.
MIB research suggests that 1 in 10 young drivers don't know they need insurance, despite the fact that it is a legal requirement.
Once an uninsured vehicle has been seized by South Yorkshire Police the owner has to produce a valid insurance certificate within seven days. They then have a maximum of 14 working days to claim their vehicle before it is crushed.
Drivers without insurance face prosecution, which will result at the very least in fines and points on their licence making it more difficult to obtain insurance in the future.
