Petition to Theresa May MP
Bring DOWN the cost of INSURANCE!!
The cost of Insurance (Motor, Home, Pet & Health) has increased so much over the last few years, it has become unaffordable to many people. Between the greed of shareholders and the tax increases under this government, many people can no longer afford insurance. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40107955 http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/comment/direct-lines-soaring-profits-and-dividend-and-the-real-reason-youre-paying-all-time-high-motor-a7870851.html Many people are finding it impossible to put a car on the road, this is isolating people. And under a government that demands we all need to try and improve our situations, how can we.... when working in another area to improve our income requires a vehicle (we don`t all live on 24hr bus routes, or work Mon to Fri 9-5), yet we can`t afford to put a vehicle on the road because for the less wealthy, the insurance can often be more expensive than the car. Home, Health & Pet insurance are a luxury to many so bringing the cost of the insurance and the tax on the insurance down would mean more people can afford it, that in itself will bring in more revenue and should help bring prices down further. This situation has to be addressed.
Petition to UK Parliament
'Notifications' and 'Non-Fault Claims' must not increase YOUR policy premium
If your vehicle gets hit, when is not your fault, insurance companies will likely increase your premium, even if you don't make a claim.This happens just because you notified the insurer of the event, as you're legally obliged to do so.It means that honest drivers are paying on behalf of irresponsible and dangerous ones.It should be illegal to take into account, or even register, any notifications and non-fault claims for policy premium calculations.Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CUE) should then records only "fault claims".This will protect YOUR premium against any accident where you are not responsible of. If you came across a dangerous driver, or your car has been victim of vandalism, or you simply had bad luck, you SHOULD NOT pay for this on your policy.

Petition to Transport Secretary Chris Grayling
Car tax should only be spent on improving our transport infrastructure
We want car tax to be ring fenced and actually spent on improving our roads Our roads need fixing, upgrading and making more efficient. Our countryside needs better public transport.Since the Road Fund was abolished in 1937, our car tax goes straight into the coffers of the Treasury and is spent on whatever the Government wants. We want this money ring fenced in a Road Fund and only spent on our transport infrastructure The Government is introducing new car tax on April 1st putting up rates on most new cars. Particularly at a time when car ownership has become more expensive than ever, we don’t think this is fair unless the extra 1.4 billion pounds the Government is raising is put back into our roads. ---Find more about Just Miles at http://www.justmiles.co.uk

Fight Vnuk - The EU Judgement Threatening to Kill UK Motorsport
In the landmark ‘Vnuk’ case, the European Court of Justice ruled in 2014 that the EU’s 2009 Motor Insurance Directive required insurance policies to cover all possible third-party accidents in all places and at all times. In some countries, including the United Kingdom and Ireland, governments had interpreted the law as meaning that it only applies to vehicles driven on public roads, however it is now clear that the judgment means that national laws must be changed to ensure that all mechanically propelled vehicles are insured for third-party losses regardless of type of use, in all places, at any time. This applies to everything from Formula One racing cars, to mobility scooters, to antique trams and everything in-between. Industry experts have already claimed that the risks associated with providing insurance cover to all motorised vehicles mean that they would be prohibitively expensive to insure, thus effectively outlawing all motorsport activities across the United Kingdom. HM Government opened a consultation on Wednesday 21st December with two clear options. First, to pursue the “Comprehensive option” which would involve changing UK motor insurance law to comply with the Motor Insurance Directive as interpreted in the Vnuk judgement. Second, the Government’s preferred “Amended Directive option” which would involve changing UK law on motor insurance to implement the Motor Insurance Directive as amended, should the European Commission pursue its proposal to amend it. While the United Kingdom remains a member of the European Union, the UK is obligated to make this change. We, the undersigned petition HM Government through the Secretary of State for Transport, The Rt. Hon. Chris Grayling, M.P., asking that HM Government under no circumstances implements the 'Vnuk' judgement in a way that encompasses vehicles involved in motor and motorcycle sport activities. www.fightvnuk.co.uk
