Suffolk: MOT Warning
Suffolk Police say they are having to stop more drivers who do not have an up to date MOT.
Officers have discovered there has been an increase of people who have forgotten to renew their MOT, with some certificates months out of date.
Inspector Bruce Gent states that "To 'forget' is no defence" and "it is every motorist's responsibility to keep their vehicle insured, taxed and MOT'd". These vehicles could be unroadworthy, putting both their owner and other road users in danger.
A text service has been set up by The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA). For £1.50 the service sends text messages to your mobile phone reminding you five weeks, two weeks and one day before your MOT is due.
Inspector Bruce Gent recommends that drivers should "either sign up for this service or make their own note of when their MOT is due".
