More drivers in the Bordesley area of Birmingham are thumbing their nose at the law and driving without insurance than anywhere else in the country, according to a report from the Motor Insurers Bureau.

In fact, the West Midlands and West Yorkshire make up for 17 of the 20 worst locations for drivers on the road without a valid motor insurance policy.

However, the good news is that uninsured driving seems to be on the wane – the figures have dropped by 25 per cent in the past five years, with the police removing nearly 750,000 uninsured vehicles from the road.

Earlier this year, continuous enforcement insurance law came into force, meaning that drivers have to insure any car they own, unless its registered as off-the-road with the DVLA.
