Has your car had a recent service?
If you own a car or a vehicle or any kind, you’re probably aware that you’re required to have it tested regularly to ensure that it is roadworthy. Although very new cars don’t always have to have an MOT, generally vehicles which are three years or older are required to be tested each year.
Whilst the MOT testing ensures roadworthiness, it doesn’t cover everything. In order to ensure that their car is operating appropriately, many people choose to have a service done as well as an MOT. Once the car has passed its MOT, the owner should be able to presume that the car is safe to drive and insure.
However, as many people don’t know much about engines or how vehicles operate, they have no way to verify that the car is safe, or even that work has been carried out on it. If the garage or mechanic has failed to test it properly or has failed to carry out essential work, your vehicle could be unsafe.
Travelling in an unsafe vehicle is obviously extremely dangerous and you may find that you’re involved in a road traffic accident or collision simply because your vehicle wasn’t safe to drive. If, for example, your brakes weren’t working properly, you may find that you’re unable to stop when necessary or that you can’t avoid colliding with other vehicles.
