The government must work harder to ensure that people without car insurance do not travel on the UK's roads, one company has stated.

Road safety charity Brake is calling for more effort from the coalition on the matter, after it conducted research revealing that one in ten motorists has been involved in a crash with an uninsured driver.

Emily Moxon from the charity said: "People who drive uninsured are more likely to take risks, crash and flee from the scene if they do hit someone.

It is vital that we see action to remove these highly irresponsible and illegal drivers from our roads."

Ms Moxon also notes that driving is one of the most dangerous activities that most people engage in on a regular basis, so individuals should ensure that they give their full attention to the road.

As well as this, she said that males are more likely to take hazardous risks while driving.
