Re: Reflective tape - MOT Legal
Buy them now, and stick them in the boot.
It'll be something to reflect
on closer to the date!
How did I know that was coming at some point in this thread.
Dave,as an ex-tester,I'll be surprised if your car fails because the rear lights don't have reflectors,especially as your rear lights are in fact genuine items (all be it from a later car).
It's one of the things that gets missed quite often,but of course that doesn't make it right.
Thats Lag, thought and hoped you may say that. Thats also been said in the Mondeo forum I got the refelective tape idea off.
If a PC Plod pulled you for having no reflectors £35 may be just a cheap or if an idiot ploughed into the back of your car whilst parked in the dark up the insurers may find a loophole.
I hadnt even considered the insurance implications or the PC plod element.
