1, It is actually the law we need one, doesn't matter how many people say its been deferred or against the road act of 1949 its still the law of the land and open to lawyers who love finding loopholes in the law. Until its tested thru a court no-one can be 100% sure either way.
2, UK insurers won't say if we are(or are not) covered for personal liability, until they admit we are covered there is no guarantee they will pay out on a car accident.
I hate paying out for anything and I hope this is resolved before I go in April but as it stands now I am on the fence but leaning towards what others say, for the sake of £5.50 it might just be worth doing.
yep I understand all of that but I for one am not going to be worrying over it
