Used car dealers and others are saying the safety of a car depends on a number of things. Usage intensity is one. A 3- year old car if trashed and unchecked can be more of a danger and menace than a 15 year old car lovingly taken care of.
PUSKAKOM is the privatised vehicle inspection business outfit. Imagine now all cars must be inspected every 3 years and be certified safe before the can get road taxes and other permits. Imagine that each day 20,000 cars are checked and pay RM50 per inspection. PUSPAKOM will earn RM1 million a day, RM365 million a year and makes RM100 million profit annually.
