Turning a blind eye

PUBLISHED: 17:09 12 January 2009 | UPDATED: 22:11 05 July 2010

DURING the past few weeks your paper has been on the side of safer roads along with the police but the police seem to turn a blind eye to cars and lorries with defective lights.

DURING the past few weeks your paper has been on the side of safer roads along with the police but the police seem to turn a blind eye to cars and lorries with defective lights.

I have just bought another car and changed all exterior light bulbs safe for rest of winter. It cost less than £20.

If motorists cannot afford to keep cars roadworthy and legal perhaps they should not have a car.

For the past five I have been travelling to Ipswich, both ways in the dark, and on one day counted 39 cars with defective lights.

Is it too much bother for police to take action but they will take action on a car doing 35mph in a 30mph limit.

Which is more of a danger?

So have the police got an answer for their neglect in not stopping and giving tickets? A car with defective lighting is a MoT failure.

By the way it took less than an hour to change the bulbs on my car.
