Within a couple of months they are on road again with another killing machine. How many times have we seen young children and elderly being mown down or victims of accidents where hit and run drivers have been involved. Unless something changes you will see this a lot more.
Currently, if you drive a car without tax, insurance and MOT and you get caught in second year, this being your first offence, you will have saved a considerable sum of money. The fine that you will receive from courts is more likely to act as encouragement for you to re offend rather than act as any deterrent.
Meanwhile this sends out a message to community. The next time your insurance premium comes round with a 20% hike to cover theft and claims by others, you take stock of situation, you have paid through nose for years, now tax is also due, and soon it will be MOT. Thomas next door has been driving around in his old banger for over three years now and got away with paying none of this. To hell with it. If you can’t beat em join em.
Moving ahead its been four years since you paid any car tax, had an MOT or insurance and you are doing just fine. That is until late one evening when you are speeding down Queensway with a car full of mates and your brakes go. Being more conscientious than some you do stop after that collision that forced a family of four off road and into crash barriers. The child who had been waving at you from rear of car you just collided with remains an impression of guilt that you will carry with you to your grave.
If only………..if only is not good enough…….
