If you get pulled, tell them because of size. You have to go to Lorry MOT stations and they have closed. If the vehicle is over 7.5 ton and registered as a PHGV . I would have thought covered under the three months extension to MOT. Well the police will be just as confused as everybody else. No points for no MOT and a band A fine, so 50% of your weekly income. Weekly income based on what you tell them, if no income then based on £120 benefit rate. So £60 fine, if it gets to court £85 costs and £32 victim surcharge so total £177Morning from a frosty corner of Kent, 6degrees inside the van first thing, didn't take long to get it nice and cosy though.
Left mum and dad to their own devices on Monday, mums getting around reasonably well now and I've left them enough meals in the freezer for around 2 months, milk and paper delivered just arranging a loaf of bread every couple of days. I've to go back and take her to the drs on Friday to have the staples out, thought long and hard about it, should I get a care taxi type thing to take her or go myself, decide there's less risk if I take her than have her in a vehicle where others have been and with someone she doesn't know. I'd rather not be doing it to be honest but not sure of another option other than my pliers out the tool box which for some reason she's not Ken on, dad said he'd hold her down.
We are on a lovely isolated field in the middle of no where but the owner wants us to leave, think he's ok actually but it's his business partner and his family want us away after the CC announcement at the weekend and he's some b*****d neibours who spy everyone coming and going so he won't risk the his 28night rule. I've tried to tell him that the legislation is now saying we should not move but they won't have any of it. I don't blame him but if I ever catch up with his neighbors we'll......... they come round every morning in their adjacent field and check who's here.
Friends who have a farm on the marsh have said we can park up there, which we are happily going to accept. We can isolate there for the time being.
Now the what to do, we are going to take the sunseeker not he merc, if it's going to be a long haul isolation we need more space. The see,er failed its mot, just over a week ago, until now I've not had the time to do the repair, ball joints, I plan to hopefully do them today but to mot it I need to drive it around thirty miles and then back to the mot station, I don't think at this time that would be essential travel, so thinking I repaire and then chance not getting stopped driving the 10miles or so to friends place. i think I'm bugered either way, be condemned for driving distance for mot or be condemned for driving with out the mot elsewhere.
Your thoughts appreciated.
Have a safe day all.
