    Unfortunately you’re preaching to the converted here. We in the trade know that cars need more servicing and that more & more drivers are driving around in unsafe and non-MOT’s cars, but from my experience they don’t seem bothered/dont understand how seriously dangerous this is. Not just for the drivers themselves but for everyone sharing the roads with them, and that includes all of us. Somehow the public needs to be educated so that they do understand the dire consequences of this, but if we try to do this, it will just be dismissed as us plying for business, to give m’The Motor Trade’ another opportunity to rip the public off. It needs to come directly from VOSA. (And to think ant every now and again some idiot MP thinks it would be a good idea to extend the MOT Test frequency from one year to two!)

    What’s needed here is a little more enforcement. No one will ever convince some people that vehicle maintenance is good idea. Even if it is made compulsory, bottom feeders will cater for minimum legal requirements.
    If there was a realistic prospect of being caught and fined without an MOT, drivers would pay more attention. An additional idea would be enforced six month test for any vehicle with previous dangerous failure.
