Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB)
The Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) is an independent body that pays road accident compensation to the victims of uninsured or untraced (unidentified) drivers. The MIB is funded by contributions from car insurance premiums.
The MIB pay out compensation for uninsured drivers because they are unlikely to be able to pay compensation for any accidents they cause out of their own pocket.
The MIB award compensation for 'hit and run' accidents caused by untraceable drivers.
The MIB also pays out injury compensation for accidents caused by foreign drivers, under the Green Card Scheme.
