Lethal diesel drivers are breaking law
THOUSANDS of drivers are breaking the law by driving diesel cars without pollution filters.
Around 1,800 have been caught since 2014, an investigation shows.
But many more drivers are said to have removed them because clogged up particulate filters can cost thousands to repair.
MoTs only require a visual inspection and BBC’s 5 live Investigates found three testers failed to spot one missing.
Experts say particulates can cause deadly diseases.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency promised harder tests next year.
