According to the motor insurance bureau, seizures of uninsured cars hit 150,000 in 2007 with one vehicle being seized every three minutes.
Other data, this time from comparethemarket.com, revealed that UK drivers are paying, on average, £31 a year more on their car insurance in order to cover for people who are uninsured.
The same research found that 87 per cent of motorists feel that the government doesn’t do enough to prevent people driving without insurance and want tougher penalties.
Graeme Trudgill, Biba’s technical and corporate affairs executive, said: "We have a strong will to do something about it.
"Uninsured drivers kill a lot of people and there is a lot of cost for the insured motorists out there and we really want to see that sorted out."
Mr Trudgill warned that "if you own a vehicle but dont have insurance and that vehicle is on the road, then you’re going to be caught".
