A thorny issue

Some insurers, in support of measures against uninsured drivers, want driving other cars (DOC) removed. Others argue that better policing need not mean the trampling of consumer rights, and that removal of DOC would create more confusion.

Battening down after a squall of mixed press comment, the market is now hesitant to act rashly over DOC. The period allowed for reflection may be short, however, as the weight of governmental pressure may become heavier.
