It is estimated that approximately 18,000 traffic accidents a year are caused by drivers from other countries. In 2014 statistics reveal a 14% increase in road traffic accidents involving foreign HGV vehicles on motorways alone.

Recent reports suggest that the different attitudes to driving, road conditions and speed limits between all the European countries can be extremely confusing to drivers from abroad in the UK and the cause of many accidents.

To allow the movement of vehicles across international borders and to ensure that victims of accidents involving foreign registered vehicles are not disadvantaged, the UK operates a Green Card scheme via the Motor Insurers Bureau which is an international certificate of insurance providing visiting motorists the minimum compulsory insurance cover required by the law of the country visited.

The Green Card system currently comprises 47 countries, including all 28 in the European Union, the countries that make up the European Economic Area, Switzerland, Russia and several countries in the Middle East.
