The government is warning motorists to insure their vehicles ahead of a new crackdown to tackle the menace of uninsured driving.

Under the new continuous insurance enforcement law – which will affect all motorists from June 20 – it is an offence to keep an uninsured vehicle, rather than just to drive when uninsured.

A national advertising campaign will be launched by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau today to raise awareness of the law.
