MoT Data for Dundee

Dundee has the lowest pass rate of any postcode area, coming in 11% short of the national average. The DD postcode covers a huge area of Scotland, where tight, potholed rural roads take their toll on suspension and other wear items - the rate of failures related to brakes in DD postcodes is 107 per cent higher than the national average.

This is partly down to conditions, but it's also worth remembering that people who live in rural areas have to drive further to reach amenties, meaning higher annual mileages and more wear and tear.
