An ‘insane’ EU law forcing ride-on mowers to be covered by owners’ car insurance will be blocked by Parliament tomorrow. Motorists would have had around £50 added to their annual insurance premiums as a result of the law, which would have also affected golf buggies and mobility scooters. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps hailed Parliament’s move as a Brexit dividend. Motorists would have faced £50 extra on car insurance premiums to cover mowers. British drivers will be protected from the rules as legislation blocking the expansion of the number of vehicles that have to be insured is due to pass its final hurdle in Parliament tomorrow.
