qwerty7: Ok so year 2000 is a line in the sand and eventually everything will have yearly wofs.
Does that not contradict itself? Cars 12 years old or less are considered safe although when they are 17 years old they will be checked once a year, which is fine in the eyes of the ltnz because of airbags and other safety features on cars registered after 2000?
I worry about annual wofs considering some people cannot be trusted to even keep their tyres inflated properly and I know for a fact if tyres pass on minimum tread, they are staying on for a year.
And why.. For the rest of eternity do cars registered before 2000 have to have 6 month wofs? Simply because they are seen as old and unsafe? The people in the lawmakers office certainly seem to hate older cars don't they.
I think in this case the reason for choosing 2000 for the year would have been a choice made between keeping it simple for people and a year at which they have decided that the manufacturing standards had reached a point close enough to where they are now to be considered acceptable as a starting point.
