I think it goes without saying that car insurance is not only necessary by law, but by common sense too.
Take it from someone who has claimed a pretty good sum of money for car repair after the, luckily, not-too-tragic accident just 2 years back (no human was harmed in the process).
Now traditionally, when it is almost time to renew our annual road tax, we would go to the car insurance company, meet up with the agent behind the desk, and get everything sorted out. This sometimes requires taking half a day off, get stuck in the jam, spend half an hour looking for parking space, spend another half an hour in queue, etc etc.
If you’re the luckier bunch, you might do it over the phone, but that necessitate another meeting with the agent’s runner to collect the cover note, and most of the time you need to tell the agent your credit card details over the phone for the transaction, not exactly a very safe thing to do.
I used to do mine over the phone, until the person in charge resigned, and then I wasn’t called to be reminded about my expiring policy. As a result, I was driving with no insurance for something like 2 weeks until I realized that my road tax expired.. luckily nothing happened in between, gah!
