I think the mechanics are only worried about loss of business.
The problem is not the frequency that vehicles get warrants - rather it is the number of vehicles that do not have uptodate WOF's or insurance.
I frequently see vehicles with tickets and even unsafe stickers on the side of the road and it doesnt stop the owners driving them.
To improve the safety of vehicles, I think the government should:
- make third party insurance compulsory
- turn expired WOFs / unsafe designations into a towable offence.
Agree / disagree?
