What should you do whith an uninsured vehicle ?
It certainly cannot be on the roads. Under § 1(2) of the Act No. 168/1999 Coll., on liability insurance for damage caused by operation of vehicle (hereinafter referred to as “act”), only a vehicle that has liability insurance may be used on a publicly accessible road. In relation to liability for damage, operating a vehicle does not consist only of driving it, but also of its being parked on a road. Incorrectly braked vehicle may start to move by itself and cause damage, not only material damage, but also personal injury and/or death. This real fact is supported by the traffic accident statistics compiled by the Traffic Police of the Czech Republic.
