    you can get free insurance and cut out the insurance companies and their rediculous charges........
    you just need a spare £500,000.

    Today UK law is defined by The Road Traffic Act 1988, which was last modified in 1991. The act requires that motorists either be insured, have a security, or have made a specified deposit (£500,000 as of 1991) with the Accountant General of the Supreme Court, against their liability for injuries to others (including passengers) and for damage to other persons' property resulting from use of a vehicle on a public road or in other public places.

    I think the loss of interest would cost more than the insurance so I'll pass, hee hee

    In 1996 a securor lorry run into the back of my 3 day old shogun and wrote if off I was stationary in traffic on thr A10 (driver on phone)

    They were self certifying.

    Paid up 18 month later after hellish court battle (glad I had money to fight them at the time)

    Had motor trade policy at the time which was useless so left to dfeal with it myself.:cry::cry::cry::cry:

    John,

    That must have been an example of a classic driving without due care case, was the driver prosecuted, that would have helped your civil case no end (not as I see it needed it?)

    Driver was only prosecuted for driving without due care and attention (within 3 month) yet he rammed me into a Volvo my dad was driving bending it so the doors needed firemen to open it and a further 2 cars got damaged in the line. The strength of the shogun saved me.

    Got worse as I hired a car and they said a Micra but I felt as I was a shogun driver why should I drive a Micra for what turned out to be over a year and the expenses was touch and go as the judge reckoned a Micra was fairer.

    I will never understand why as they were clearly to fault racked up all these costs, they didn't even want to buy a new shogun that had 13K worth of damage and early on in the negotiation got a good bid on the wrecked car.

    This to make things worse happened with days of my brother being killed by a drunk driver on the A10.

    Twas not long after this experience I lost my golden touch and crap started happening and still is:Doh::cry::cry::cry:

    i reckon we must have.......the sum is in pounds (£) and the artical refers to 'the road traffic act 1988'.

    i also didnt know and thought it was an american judicial thing.....you live and learn:thumb:

    appears the police, ambulance and fire services and some council and parks depts use this method of insurance.
