It’s common knowledge that if you are caught illegally driving in a bus lane you will be subject to a £90 fine (a Bus Lane Penalty Charge Notice, to be precise), but where do motorists stand if road layouts have recently been changed?
Only three months to go until the new MOT changes come into force, on 20th May, 2018. Designed to make the test stricter, these changes are set to ensure the cars on our roads are safer than before. These will also ensure the MOT test adheres to the ‘EU Roadworthiness Package’, with closer scrutiny on the particulate filters of diesel cars and a new way of categorising faults; Minor, Major or Dangerous.
With speeding fines at an all time high, is it fair for the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead on road parking to call for motorists to be fined for even going 1mph over the speed limit (and, is it even possible to enforce?)
