'Make drivers' display car insurance discsDrivers should have to display their car insurance details in a disc on their windscreen.
The suggestion has been put forward by Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes, who wants to see a system introduced that is similar to the one used in France.
All cars in the European country are required by law to carry a pink disc with all of their insurance information on it.
"Surely this is a simple way for other members of the public to notice cars which aren't carrying a pink disc," Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes remarked.
The idea has garnered support from the former Conservative secretary for transport Lord Mawhinney.
During question time in the House of Lords, Earl Atlee revealed there are currently 1.2 million vehicles in the UK that have no cover.
He added the move could be a sensible option, although the system is not foolproof as it would no longer be valid if a person stopped paying their premiums.
