- The local authority of the accident was caused by potholes or has road surfaces
The Motor Insurance Bureau exists to pay compensation to the victims of accidents where the other driver was not insured or cannot be traced. Any company that offers motor insurance has to be a member and each year pay a levy.
This levy is used to pay the compensation claims that MIB receives so that non-fault accident victims do not lose out because of a lack of insurance.
The insurance companies also have to provide details of the vehicles they insure. This is all fed into a central database, which has the information of all motor vehicles that are insured within the UK.
