A top road traffic Lawyer known for some of his A-list clients including David Beckham, has warned road users their motor insurance could be invalidated if caught on a "non-essential" journey.
Motorists have clearly been ordered to only travel if it's absolutely essential, but with figures released by the Department of Transport showing vehicle use surged by 10 per cent in 24 hours on Monday, Lawyer Nick Freeman has said drivers may be lulled into a false sense of security.
Freeman, also know as 'Mr Loophole' because of his ability to find a 'loophole' in traffic laws, has stressed that the current coronavirus crisis creates grey areas with road traffic rules.
Freeman has highlighted on his 'Mr Loophole's Coronavirus road traffic charter', a list of some of the possible grey areas which road users may not be aware of, that driving during the lockdown could invalidate insurance.
Freeman wrote: "Car journeys are currently limited to essential travel. So if you have an accident and can't prove your journey was essential, your interest rates may be void."
