The idea behind recording the mileage at the time of the MOT is so that whoever is responsible for deciding MOT intervals can calculate the average mileage done by the average car per year. Whilst it is possible a vehicle can do very high mileage each year the exrtra wear and tear will normally force the driver to make repairs anyway. Apart from this they always have other rules to fall back on. The Road Traffic Act clearly states a driver has a legal responsibilty to ensure his/her vehicle is in a roadworthy condition and if the vehicle is insured the policy will also state that the driver will comply with all relevant legislation.
Whilst rules and regulations can always be flouted by the "crafty" motorist the high mileage aspect could only be monitored by a sophiscated tracking system which would only force more cost on road users but the "big brother spy in the cab" as used in commercial vehicles maybe isn't that far away for the daily motorist.
