Island needs MOT, safety group told

Post by GD on Fri 15 Apr 2011, 6:16 pm

VEHICLE testing proved a hot topic at Living Streets’ annual meeting last evening.

Members of the pedestrian safety group discussed a wide range of subjects, including speeding, pavement surfing and abandoned cars, but the need for a legal requirement for vehicles to be roadworthy was the most prominent.

Guest speaker police traffic sergeant John Tostevin said that there was a serious need for an official test.

‘It’s a concern to me that when we do these stop checks there are a high proportion of vehicles with faults.’

(from GEP)

Will a MOT happen.. I would be very surprised..

We need to make sure the poorest can have good health care
I know of many older folks who will not go to the docs
Also those of my own age who have not got health insurance stay away from the docs .[ i am very lucky as my husbands firm pays for his so we only have to insure me]
sometimes we need to think of others .hope the states are listening
as it seem it is always those in the middle bracket that will suffer .

I used to support this group but there has been two updates that i disagree on.
one was letting young children walk to school alone.the other putting the island speed limits to 20...i think they need a new leader and fast!
