MoT Petition Gathers Pace
Classic Car Weekly|October 4,2017

Experts and celebrities back CCW’s bid to prompt Government rethink

 

As CCW went to press, 1279 people have signed a petition asking the Government to reassess the classic vehicle MoT exemption furore.

The petition, started by CCW, follows The Department for Transport (DfT)’s announcement that it intends to exempt most vehicles that are more than 40 years old from annual roadworthiness tests from May 2018. The petition also requests that all vehicles be given independent annual safety inspections.

The DfT’s own figures indicate that just six percent of the pre-1960 vehicles that are already exempt are voluntarily tested. These plans will see an additional 293,000 vehicles exempted from the MoT, in addition to the 197,000 vehicles that currently meet the required criteria.

Ehrlich Speaks to Mother-Writers

Lara Ehrlich, author of the short story collection Animal Wife (Red Hen Press, 2020), has a deep narrative investment in the ways the world denies women power and agency. In October 2020 that commitment took a new shape with the first episode of her podcast, Writer Mother Monster, a much-needed balm for those of us balancing mothering and writing in the midst of a global pandemic. Aimed at dismantling the myth that women can “have it all,” her podcast is a series of interviews with mother-writers working in all genres, at varied points in their careers, who candidly discuss the joys and complications of that dual identity. Ehrlich, herself a mother-writer—her daughter turns five this year—spoke about what she has gleaned from these exchanges and how they’ve influenced her own approach.
