Uninsured clampdown

Police have launched a massive clampdown on uninsured drivers in one of the areas worst hit by the offence. 

MCN joined police last week as they seized eight cars in a four hour operation on a single stretch of road in Haringey, North London.  

The operation was part of a wider clampdown called Operation Foist, designed to target uninsured drivers across the capital.  

We reported last month that insurers had said price hikes of 20 per cent were set to hit bikes due in part to uninsured drivers.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) said last week that for every premium sold insurers have to pay £30 to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), which compensates victims of uninsured drivers.

To see what the rest of the sweep on bad drivers turned up, see Wednesday’s MCN available form February 21, 2007.
