Re­duc­tion in unin­sured ve­hi­cles

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

The state has just fin­ished updating its list of unin­sured ve­hi­cles by cross-check­ing new data pro­vided by the com­pe­tent au­thor­i­ties against that sub­mit­ted by the in­sur­ance com­pa­nies. Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est fig­ures, the number of ve­hi­cles iden­ti­fied bu the In­de­pen­dent Author­ity for Public Rev­enue as unin­sured has dropped to 457,000 from the 1.15 mil­lion recorded at the first count (made us­ing er­ro­neous data and be­fore the com­pli­ance of a number of ve­hi­cle own­ers).

IAPR of­fi­cials note, how­ever, that this was only an in­for­mal cross­check­ing process, con­ducted on July 15, and that no pay no­tices will be sent to the own­ers of unin­sured cars or mo­tor­bikes at this stage. The rea­son is be­cause the state is wait­ing for the list by the Po­lice and the Trans­port Min­istry to be up­dated a third time in Septem­ber so as to min­i­mize the er­rors – and the has­sle for cit­i­zens who have to prove that the unin­sured ve­hi­cles in their name are ei­ther not their prop­erty any­more or have been stolen.

Ac­cord­ing to in­sur­ance com­pany data, some 413,000 ve­hi­cles were in­sured within one month, from late June to late July, in­clud­ing of course some new cars and mo­tor­bikes. This de­vel­op­ment tem­po­rar­ily boosted state rev­enues, as in some cases, be­sides the in­sur­ance levy, there was also the pay­ment of road tax for cars with large en­gines.
