If your MOT is due after the 30th of March then there will be a 6 month exemption, if your MOT is due before that date then you must have it tested or declared SORN.

You are still responsible for maintaining your car in a roadworthy condition even if MOT exempt.

Numbers going up in this area and also a big jump in Liverpool from a few days ago. 57 L'pool , 16 Wirral. Hampshire is top of the list with 251 cases , and I'm wondering if this is affecting the RN, based in Portsmouth ,Hampshire.

Looking at that excell , Nightingale Hospital in London, 4 thousand beds , 2 mortuaries. God help us ! Listen yesterday to an ex astronaut being interviewed, he said “ he hopes this is not Mother Nature kicking back else we’re done. See how the pollution has gone down! Keep waking up hoping for a miracle , so hard to be optimistic about this horrendous situation but that’s all we can do.

If it's not Mother Nature, then it's Satan. More inclined to think it's Satan, but Mother Nature will win in the end with a message for us all (hopefully) .

Police have created a rule that you are not allowed to take your car to go to a place to exercise.

Quote
Police have told people you can't get in your car and drive somewhere to walk your dog or exercise during the coronavirus crisis.


Quote
Now police are making it clear that exercise has to be done from your home - you are not allowed to drive to another location to either exercise or walk your dog.


Is this now becoming a police state?

Sorry DD , sounds like I’m shouting at you there but feeling pretty despondent tonight and can’t understand why people can’t just follow the rules so that we have a fighting chance of getting through this...we’ve got to look at Italy because that’s what’s coming for us ..

Not sure about the police creating a new rule. Don't new rules have to be passed in law, and how with Parliament now in recess. ? An MP clearly said only yesterday that if getting exercise in a quiet location meant you needed to drive there, that was ok.
I also heard that New Brighton was teaming with people yesterday.
There's been a lot of traffic flying up and down my road today, much more than yesterday. I suppose supplies for the week have run out and it;s another supermarket dash for many, but so far as following speed limits , that seems to have gone to the wall !

It is far safer for me and other to drive to a quiet place for a walk rather than take a walk locally where everybody is walking.

People purposely going to relatively crowded places is the polar opposite to what I am saying and breaks other rules.

The only Government rule that approaches my topic is that it says to spend the minimum time outside of your house. But being inside your car is as safe as being inside your house and stop-start dodging of other walkers, shoppers, loiterers etc is hardly a fitness walk.

The Government has completely messed up with their rules, there are far too many uncertainties, if they had banned travelling to a place of exercise then fine, but they haven't stated that.

It now turns out that household tradesmen are being instructed to carry on as per normal for most of their customers but to only do emergencies for customers in isolation. Many self-employed people have already closed their businesses down on advice and information given before today but now they may have risked the financial support the Government is still fumbling over.

Well, I think they were hoping people could behave in a sensible fashion and not consider everyone as a fool . They got that wrong too.
Personally , I think they have achieved a lot in just about 10 days.. Considering all things that need negotiation, logistics, statistics, travel, orders, quantities, all of these things involve other people in other places and other businesses, to actually get it all together with information necessary, must be a task of mega proportions.
