Drivers whose cars emit more than the maximum carbon mononxide allowed in the MOT test could face being stopped at the roadside if councils win powers they are seeking from Parliament, reports the Evening Standard (p15).

Under the plans, councils would be able to stop vehicles to take enforcement action, and serve enforcement notices on drivers whose vehicles fail an MOT test.

According to the House of Commons transport committee, 10% of vehicles are responsible for more than 50% of the emissions of carbon monoxide.
