Money Saving Aspects of the MOT
I can remember when the MOT was first introduced (now I am giving my age away) - it raised an unholy row - but in all honesty when you think about it - it was only making us keep our vehicles the way we ought to. We expect the bus or coach sitting in the next lane on the motorway to have been tested but we feel agrieved that we have to have a test. The standard of testing will always be arbitary to some extent but until we find something better we are stuck with the human element of any testing system. We tend to complain about the cost of having to test the vehicle but on the other hand I just wonder how much money (never mind lives) that has been saved. Even if it helped us prevent a breakdown - look at the roadside recovery costs that are saved. Even the emissions test aspect of the MOT goes a long way to save money on fuel costs.
