Don't have an accident here!
The society of French insurers have just released their list of the departments in France that have the highest percentage of uninsured vehicles on the roads with 5 of the top 10 departments being in the Paris region. This list tends to logically correspond with the areas of France that are the poorest, the majority being around the more deprived Paris suburbs. The national average of uninsured vehicles per 10,000 is 2.8, whilst the highest percentage is in the St Denis department, next to Paris, with an average of 15.3 uninsured vehicles per 10,000 – 5 times the national average. The department with the lowest number of uninsured vehicles is Lozere in the south of France – also the least populated department in France. The top 10 departments for uninsured vehicles are as follows :
1 - Seine-Saint-Denis: 15.3 2 - Val-d'Oise: 7.4 3 - Val-de-Marne: 7.3 4 - Bouches-du-Rhône: 6.3 5 - Paris: 6.2 6 - Alpes-Maritimes: 5.8 7 - Essonne: 5.4 8 - Rhône: 5.3 9 - Pyrénées-Orientales: 5 10 - Nord: 4.6
