Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has vowed to improve the process for whiplash claims so "honest drivers" no longer bear the cost of a system that has been abused.
Grayling announced that the amount medical professionals can charge for reports on people who claim to have suffered whiplash has been drastically reduced from up to £700 to £180.
It is the latest measure announced by the government as they bid to end Britain's "compensation culture".
"Honest drivers have been bearing the cost of a system that has been open to abuse and it is time for a change," the Justice Secretary said.
"We are determined to have an improved, robust system for medical evidence - so genuine claims can still be settled but fraud is driven out of the market."
