The moped driver, aged in his 20s, was taken to a central London hospital where he remains in a critical condition. His injuries are being treated as life-threatening. This shows why taking safety very seriously is very important. It is why beginners are only allowed to drive a 50cc and they are all insured beforehand. Anyone currently driving without insurance should strongly reconsider their choice and they will find the average 50cc moped insurance cost online.
