“Did you know over 26,000 people are injured each year by uninsured and hit-and-run drivers? We're trying to stop them!

“All uninsured drivers are likely to have their vehicle seized, get a £300 fixed penalty notice & get 6 points on their licence.

“If the case goes to court, they could receive a driving ban and an unlimited fine. A criminal record can also affect job prospects. It's not worth the risk.”
