On 23 February 2015, Insurance Europe issued a press release voicing concerns about a European Parliament proposal to eliminate certain administrative barriers to re-registration of motor vehicles in the EEA.  Insurance Europe believes that, as currently drafted, the proposal could lead to increased levels of uninsured driving which would be detrimental to European road safety.  In particular, Insurance Europe believes that the existing registration systems designed to prevent uninsured driving should not be reduced (e.g. it believes that failure to have insurance cover should be one of the grounds for refusal of an application for re-registration).
