Why the Uninsured Drivers Agreement 1999 needs to be scapped

My February 2013 opinion piece: Asleep at the Wheel.

For cutting edge commentary

Campaign for reform 

 

Nicholas' was first to expose the extent to which the statutory and extra-statutory provision relating to third party motor insurance is systemically defective.  .

 

The need for reform

The relevant statutory and extra-statutory provision relating to third party motor insurance is systemically defective.  It is not possible to determine the legal entitlement of third party victims to the compensatory guarantee provided through compulsory insurance from wording of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Motor Insurance Bureau’s agreements with the Secretary of State for compensating victims of uninsured and untraced vehicles. This lack of precision is bad for victims and for insurers alike. What is required is a complete overhaul. Nicholas has been campaigning for reform in this area since 2011.  Unfortunately, the intervention of Brexit has put an end to further reforms, at least for the foreseeable future.

 

Reforms achieved since 2015

Nicholas has been behind the most far reaching judicial review of the UK’s provision for motor insurance, since it was made compulsory in 1930.  His campaigning work produced major reforms to the Uninsured Drivers Agreement in July 2015 and the RoadPeace judicial review forced admissions of non-conformity with the EU Directive (2009/103/EC) on motor insurance along with substantial improvements within the Untraced Drivers Agreement 2017.  The RoadPeace judicial review has also forced the government to conceded that its legislation is not compatible with the Directive.
