London the worst region for uninsured drivers

Nic Cackett

London tops a list of regions with the highest percentage of uninsured drivers, according to the Motor Insurers' Bureau.

Despite a number of initiatives and police operations which has reduced the number of uninsured drivers on our roads by 20 per cent, the Bureau estimates that 11 per cent of motorists in the capital are driving without legal cover.

Nationwide, that figure is reduced to four percent, but that remains the highest level of uninsured drivers in Europe.
