68% rise in missing brake lights

Has vehicle upkeep been put on the back-burner?

MORE than 11% of cars and commercial vehicles on UK roads are missing brake lights.

Worryingly, the figure has increased 68% since 2010. The survey, conducted by TescoCars highlights the increasing number of cars and commercial vehicles using UK roads that would leave the driver liable for 3 points and a £60 fine and, if tested, would fail the MOT.

The survey also highlighted missing headlights, with 3% of cars and commercial vehicles with just one functioning headlight, reducing the driver’s view of the road and the vehicle visibility to other road users.

The survey results show that many UK drivers are not making regular checks of their car or are knowingly avoiding maintenance in order to reduce running costs.
