Be Wiser Insurance
There is no denying that the pockets of British motorists have been hard pressed in recent years by rising fuel costs, bogus insurance claims artificially inflating premiums and road tax price hikes. However, it seems the Government may have been listening to the country’s collective groan under the weight of all these bills.
 
New plans from the Government have proposed price cuts and freezes in many crucial areas to help the beleaguered UK motorist. The maximum price for an MOT will be frozen at just under £55 until 2015 and driving test fees will also be reviewed. In an attempt to deflate high fuel prices on motorways plans are for new motorway road signs which show the price of fuel at motorway services so drivers can make an informed choice about where to fill up.
 
Initiatives are already planned to help expose fake insurance claims for whiplash and crash for cash fraudsters which should help to bring down the cost of insurance premiums for the innocent driver.
 
Parking charges is another area that the Government say local councils should look at, things like having a five minute period of grace before a traffic warden will issue a ticket and also having to publish the annual profits made from parking charges and fines.
