MTA NSW SIGNALS MAJOR CONCERNS OVER MOBILE SAFETY INSPECTION TRIAL

Motor Traders’ Association of NSW (MTA NSW) CEO, Stavros Yallouridis, has signalled a number of significant concerns after the NSW Government’s announcement on Thursday 19 April, to trial mobile safety inspections for cars, motorcycles, boat trailers and caravans.

“On behalf of our Members, the Association has major concerns that the trial announced could have adverse effects on public safety and; a detrimental impact to their small businesses in relation to how these Mobile Inspections will be conducted,” Yallouridis stated.

These major concerns include:

 Public safety related to testing

 Negative impact on small business

 Quality of the inspections

“The Association has outlined its safety and operational concerns to the Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight, Melinda Pavey, and has requested to meet with the Minister to discuss these matters.”

“Our objective is to ensure our Members’ concerns are raised regarding public safety and small business pressures. We are also very disappointed that our feedback expressed prior to this trial announcement was not considered,” Yallouridis said.
