Clocking war will be stepped up, says RMIF

THE Retail Motor Industry Federation will step up its war against people who tamper with vehicle mileage recorders despite a recent Government decision to take no further action on setting up an 'anti-clocking' register. RMIF president Sue Brownson told guests at the federation's northern region dinner in Manchester: 'We will continue to campaign along with the Consumers Association - and hopefully this will not be the final word from Government on this subject.'

She also hit back at the 'bad press' endured by the motor trade saying: 'The car has done more to improve the quality of life than any other invention in the past century. We are spending far too much time defending the jobs that we do and responding to the anti-car lobby. We must move on and endeavour to educate our customers and provide constructive alternatives and compromises to the traffic problems facing our towns and cities.'
