My friend had her mot 3 weeks ago and my neighbour has just knocked on the door to tell us her car is in the fence down the road. A telegraph pole luckily stopped it and thank god its raining and no kids playing out. The handbrake was on and she was able to drive the car forward while it was still on (AFTER THE MISHAP) so obviously its a handbrake failure, would this not have come up with the mot. The handbrake cable has not snapped its holding now a few notches higher than it was. Is the m.o.t er at fault or is it just one of those things.
