UK citizens lying on car insurance applications

One in ten UK citizens are lying on their car insurance applications and one quarter have driven illegally at some point to keep costs down, according to RAC Financial Services. A further 11% admitted to lying about where they kept their car. Pretending it is kept overnight in a locked garage is the most common lie. Other untruths include deliberately under-estimating the value of the car (6%), power and performance of the car (3%) and giving the wrong main address to attract a lower premium
