Proposals to charge drivers every time the fires service attends road traffic accidents.

Government proposals to charge drivers every time the fire service attends road traffic accidents could bump up social costs of car insurance premiums to around £70, said the AA. Fire and Rescue Services are critical at around 30,000 road traffic accidents where there is no fire and rescue. But a consultation paper published by the Deputy Prime Minister's office suggested that the rescue services should be entitled to charge for such services, provided they do not make a profit.
