THIS LETTER is prompted by the news story "Challenge GV9s (if you disagree) — LA" (CM, February 23).
Consider that: 0 A GV9 can be issued on a fault not eligible as a legal offence.
O A GV9 can be issued on wear tolerance, smoke levels etc at the examiner's whim.
We can be fined (by loss of earnings) without the chance to defend ourselves and without the right of appeal.
O It is all too obvious that examiners are Civil Service mechanics are not trained to deal with people, and administer law, as are the police.
▪ Even if we could prove to the LA that a GV9 was issued illegaly, we have no guarantee that it will not stay on our record, and no way of gaining recompense.
I believe C&U Regs are a
well-thought and allencompassing legislation, which make a major contribution to road safety.
The vehicle inspection system in operation on paper, is sufficient to reinforce C&U. It is only the inspectors that need improving.
