WEDNESDAY 4 MAY 2016
I’ve been looking forward to the Government opening up the EU Roadworthiness Consultation to the public for a very long time now. It’s an extremely contentious issue that fills me with mixed emotions – on the one hand, I love the idea of being given something sweet from ‘the man’ (no longer being tied to annual MoT testing). But on the other, there’s no denying that there’s the potential for an awful lot of cars hitting the roads without being tested.
It’s left me angry and disappointed that it looks like the Government appears to be employing delaying tactics. It’s a shame, because even if the Brexit vote is not the reason for this decision, it’s clear there are concerns.
The matter of old cars shouldn’t be a political one, but it would seem they’re not listening in London.
