SpookyAwol: I fully agree. Attitudes will have to change.after all the dust settles, everyone will wonder what all the who hah was about.
How do you make that change? Currently there is no real downside to not maintaining your car that has a current wof. Sure,a ticket for not up to wof standard, but its accepted that it won't or can't be policed any more than it currently is.
Crash? Apparently figures are in our favour as it not being a high risk factor.
Id like to think that people can and will maintain their cars, but I'm a realist. If it saves a dollar, most will take the risk (assuming they even realise the risk....)
I dont think much will change. Those who look after their vehicles now and get regular warrants will continue to. Those who dont now will continue not to. Will be the same ones so overall the status quo will remain
