Impact of uninsured driving
• It is estimated that uninsured and untraced drivers kill 130 people
and injure 26,500 every year
• Research shows uninsured drivers are five times more likely to:
- be involved in road collisions
- fail to comply with other road traffic requirements
- be engaged in other criminal activity
• We know that by tackling uninsured driving we disrupt other
criminality
• You have made over 205 million enquiries on our database and
over 850,000 enquiries to the Police Helpline
Partnering together for safer roads

in excess of 1.3 million seized

seizing 271,756 vehicles
• Uninsured driving has reduced by 50% (2m to 1m uninsured drivers)
