further tests for modified cars

What do ye think. If they pass an nct every year, which most have to due to age, what's the problem.

I can see where they come from, I think alot is due to the younger boy racers giving everyone a bad name

alot of work that is not tested or done by a qualified or competent person is to blame or cheap parts which haven't passed a tuv test or quality control for example

but as you said if a car passes mot/nct then what's the problem, it should be down to the tester to make sure the car is road worthy

In all fairness declaring a spoiler, bonnet vent etc. is nonsense.
Gardai could already seize potencially dangerous cars.

If this becomes heavily/properly regulated a lot of cars will be in trouble!

I for one won't be putting my car through another test..if it passes nct then it's certified roadworthy..if they're do worried why don't they just ask for proof at the nct that your coilovers etc are tuv approved

will be interesting to see if it goes ahead. all in the name of money, you will have to declare lightweight wheel studs as they change the original weight of the car :mrgreen:
If the cross is empty. proceed with caution

they say in the article that dangerous vehicles account for 1% of all fatal road collisions..would the not be better off focusing on something that has a bit of a higher risk of causing a fatal collision
