    Why don’t you just enjoy your car let the police concentrate on all those Audi RS 3,6,8s that are bombing about up to no good.

    Luck of the draw generally.
    My mate got away with just being told to "fit some mudguards before I see you again".
    When my Model A threw it's propshaft down the A6 the police arrived to push me off the road. One of them pushed the front wheel around to get the car moving. Neither of them mentioned the lack of fenders.

    it does get my goat this, so you can take it for an examination of roadworthness (mot) and pass with no fenders/ mudguards
    but you can have a prohibition by the police to have them, and have that same MOT guy who passed you, pass you again?

    So whos rules do we play by? given that its in black and white (even tho its wooley) even as far as stating "as reasonably practicable", this being determined by what? example being, on a harley chop of mine, no front mudguard other than a tied scarf on the forks, it works to stop water / mud from flinging up, but it is reasonable, and practical, and it passes a mot.

    i also have issue with the no mot rule, being that if the cops stop one of my bikes, no tax no mot, and issue a mot check, and i take it to again, said mot guy, who looks at me and stated "doesnt need a mot as per government rules" you kinda think WTF is wrong with making it simple, and hand the rule book to someone who owns a car or motorbike
    one day i wil wake up and i'll be dead!

    The MOT is a safety check, no mudguards does not make the vehicle unsafe. It does however make it a pain to pedestrians who gets showered with s**t when a fenderless car goes by in the rain and sprays everyone.

    That's the great thing about living in the UK! The police getting the vehicle checked by the MoT station is just outsourcing the task - it's easier to do it that way than have, say, a police mechanic do the check. For all the anomalies and oddities of the system, I'd still reckon that Britain is one of the best countries in the world to run an old bike, car, rod or chop, when you hear about the hoops some folk overseas have to jump through.

    Why would anyone want to change what we have ? Worse still why would anyone want all the rules to tie up ?

    It's only the fact that they don't that have allowed 'grey' areas that others like to use to their advantage .
