MoT Files: Ten best postcode areas
One of the most surprising aspects to come out of The MoT Files is the amount of regional variations. You wouldn't have thought that the MoT test (and whether you pass or fail) would vary that much - but it does. Coastal and rural areas, with poorer roads and harsher weather, tend to have lower pass rates than more built up areas - see the list below for the ten worst postcode areas.
The Kirkcaldy postcode area encompasses some exposed coastal areas and rural roads. Furthermore, the population density of Scotland is sparse, with a scattered people relying on cars every day – so vehicles lead harder lives and cover more miles than they do in places like London.
