Motoring: 'Dirty' cars warning

Roads Minister Robert Key has criticised motorists who fail to service their cars properly. 'Most emissions are produced by short, local journeys, and the worst culprits are poorly serviced vehicles.' Ailing engines, he added, are dirty engines. Government proposals under consideration include a stricter MoT (the current emissions test is a joke), and possible financial incentives to encourage drivers to scrap dirty old cars.
