GOVERNMENT CONFIRMS ANTI TAMPERING PROPOSALS WILL NOT BE RETROSPECTIVE



April 25th, 2022.


The National Motorcyclists Council (NMC) reports that Parliament has today debated a petition, which opposes potential new regulations against so called vehicle ‘anti tampering.


The petition; ‘Do not implement proposed new offences for vehicle "tampering"’ was tabled by Gareth James and attracted more than 115,000 signatures, making it eligible for a parliamentary debate.

The original proposals were revealed in a consultation on 'The Future of Transport Regulatory Review – Modernising Vehicle Standards' during 2021.

The consultation proved to be highly controversial, generating wide attention in the motorcycle world and the media, largely due to how the wording in the consultation was interpreted by the wider public. It was worded in such a way that suggested all types of modifications of motorcycles could be outlawed. It also went further by proposing to outlaw the marketing, promotion and sale of ‘tampering services or products’.

The NMC and other motorcycling organisations responded to the consultation, rejecting the proposals and called on the government to clarify, in detail, what it means by ‘tampering’.
