As some of you may know, I test vehicles for RWC. Have been for the last 20 years. Seen a lot of things in that time that would scare you shit-less hno: The condition of some vehicles I've come across were virtual death-traps for both occupants and other road users. The last 5 odd years, I've noticed a much better quality of vehicle on our roads. My guess is that later model vehicles are more affordable today than they were 10-15 years ago. Hense no-one needs to drive a rust-ridden piece of crap anymore. Add to the equation the technology & warranties put into later models, people are having their vehicles regularly serviced & maintained. The result sees safer cars on our roads. ( pity the same could not be said for drivers ) :roll: Ok, so what is the excuse for having the inside of your vehicle looking like a bloody pig sty? I am frequently seeing more vehicles that are laden with rubbish ( empty cans, bottles, McD wrappers, candy wrappers, diapers, dirty laundry, broken toys, tools, cutlery, magazines, bills, etc.. you name it, it's there in the boot, back seat, floors, parcel shelves etc. So why am I whining you may ask? Well someone has to make their way through all that rubbish to inspect rear seat belts ( usually buried in the seat cracks ), boot & cabin floors for signs of rust etc.. Why should I have to sort through rubbish like an old hobo because some lazy, dirty PIG can't be fawked , clearing out their car knowing the damn thing is in for an inspection :evil: On top of that is the threat of having some dirty aids infested needle jab me. All this for 80 bucks ? NO Thanks! I'm seriously considering refusing to test such vehicles. I imagine I'd be well within my rights to do so. Sorry for the rant, but lately its REALLY been pissing me OFF !
