Last quote by Greg Archer
We were told by the vehicle manufacturers the [diesel emissions] limits would be met and there was no problem. What of course actually happened was those limits were not met on the road, as the car manufacturers started to turn down the after-treatment systems and cheat the tests. The car industry continues to be as obstructive as they have always been. Nothing has changed.

The polluter should be paying, not the consumer and not the taxpayer. But the UK is doing nothing. If the car industry was required to recall those vehicles and upgrade the after-treatment system that would make a sizeable difference to the air pollution problems in our cities.feedback

At the present time the tests are carried out by the manufacturers' own laboratories, they are carried out by people been paid for, by the carmakers themselves, and even the organisations overseeing those tests are being paid by the car industry.feedback
