Over 7% of cars have no insurance

MORE than 183,000 motor vehicles are not covered by liability car insurance, which is compulsory in Slovakia. The Slovak Insurers’ Bureau (SKP) registered at the end of 2012 a total of 2.355 million insured vehicles; however the total number of motor vehicles in Slovakia based on the statistics of the Interior Ministry is 2.538 million. Thus the number of uninsured vehicles accounted for 7.2 percent of all registered vehicles. In the previous year 171,000 vehicles were without liability insurance, the SITA newswire wrote.
