Welsh car dealer fined £12,000 for offering to supply a dangerous vehicle - Car Dealer Magazine

Car Dealer Magazine reports that a dealer in Wales has been fined £12,000 (reduced from £18,000 to recognise that the dealer had pleaded guilty) under the General Product Safety Regulations 2006 for supplying a Renault Clio in dangerous condition. The handbrake did not work. More to the point, perhaps, is that the company had previously been cautioned for similar offences and had been given advice (at another site) about the importance of all vehicles it offered being safe.

The Court was told that safety checks were carried out by staff members who had no formal mechanical training or qualifications.
