European directive discipline

THE European Commission is referring the Netherlands to the European Court of Justice for failing to implement the Fourth Motor Insurance Directive by the required date.

It says that until the directive is properly applied throughout the EU, drivers from one member state involved in an accident with a car registered and insured in another will still find it difficult to claim compensation quickly.

Similar cases were brought against France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg and Portugal last month.
