Car insurance: Fewer vehicles dumped by drivers
Thursday, 14 August 2008
Car insurance customers in the UK are dumping fewer cars than they were four years ago.
According to figures from the Local Government Association (LGA), over the period there has been an 84 per cent fall in vehicles left behind by motorists in the East Midlands.
The group added that an additional 80 per cent fall was found to have taken place in the east of England in the last four years as well as a 77 per cent cut in the south-west.
Paul Bettison, LGA councillor and chairman of the environment board, revealed that a three-pronged approach was developed to deal with the problem.
He said: "People tell us that these eyesores make them feel unsafe in their own neighbourhood and figures like these show councils up and down the country are working hard to make people feel safe and secure."
This comes after uSwitch.com research found that some £168 million will be wasted on car finance deals for 58 plate automobiles in September.
