The Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) believes the strategy they introduced for fighting fraud is impacting on the market, after recording an 8 percent decrease in claims involving uninsured or untraced vehicles during the first 7 months of 2018. Over the January to July period this year, the MIBI received a total of 1,572 claims, a drop of 144 in total when compared to the same period in 2017.

Claims caused by uninsured and untraced vehicles remain worryingly high. The MIBI remain committed to working with key Government and Industry stakeholders to combat this problem, whilst compensating the victims of uninsured drivers.
