A £230 million project, led by Siemens, is set to link thousands of UK garages under a public-private contract to combat MOT fraud and eliminating the build-up of paper records, says the UK`s Times (25/8/00). The project, replacing the existing paper-based system of certification to be abolished in 2002, will establish Internet links between the Vehicle Inspectorate and 19,000 garage forecourts.
