Here’s an example to help you:
‘I listened to BBC Radio Scotland on the way to work on Monday. One of the reports was about councils in Scotland not using opportunities to carry out roadside pollution emission checks on vehicles. A lady from Edinburgh Council explained why these checks weren’t carried out in Edinburgh. She talked about how the council invests the money in buses and trams, cycle paths etc, to encourage people to use more eco friendly transport. She also said that vehicle emissions were checked every year in an MOT (after a vehicle is 3 years old) so roadside checks weren’t necessary.
The reporter commented that other coucils like Glasgow
City carried out a few thousand checks and so they must feel these checks were very important.
There is an ongoing discussion about whether or not the Scottish Government should insist these roadside checks are carried out to reduce pollution.’
