UK Car Sales fall for Fourth Month 

The market for new cars in the UK has declined for the fourth month in a row.

New car registrations fell by 9.3% in July compared with the same month last year, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). Just under 162,000 vehicles were sold last month. So far this year, 1.56 million cars have been sold, down 2.2% from a year earlier. The SMMT said the market was falling amid “growing uncertainty” over the plans for Brexit.

 

Safety concerns over recalled Uber cars in Singapore 

Uber has said it could have done more to pull unsafe cars off the road in Singapore, amid allegations it rented out faulty vehicles to drivers.

One of these cars caught fire in January, according to the report. Uber has faced a string of controversies in recent months.

 

Business Group urges Cabinet to agree on Brexit Transition 

One of the UK’s biggest business lobby groups has urged the cabinet to stop “dancing around the edges” of Brexit. The Institute of Directors (IoD) called on the cabinet to come up with a “transitional agreement” to smooth the move to Brexit. It wants it to bridge the “the Brexit Gap” between leaving the EU and setting up new trading arrangements. It warned that without agreement, business faces “short-term chaotic cliff edges”.

Moped Criminals not being chased by Police in case of Accidents 

Increasing numbers of police officers are deciding not to give chase to moped criminals for fear they will not have the support of senior officers if something goes wrong, Sky News has been told. Moped-enabled crime has reached almost epidemic proportions – particularly in London. Here, there have been more than 16,000 moped-related crimes in the past 12 months – a threefold increase on the previous year. Sky News was given exclusive access to join officers from Scotland Yard’s moped crime task force as they tackled bike offenders in the capital.

Pollution Tunnel plan ‘would harm Health’

Plans to build “pollution tunnels” over motorways were criticised as a potential health hazard yesterday and it emerged that the system could cost millions of pounds per mile. Scientists said that covering roads in pollution-absorbing canopies would increase drivers and passengers’ exposure to toxic gases. They spoke out after a report in The Times yesterday that Highways England was considering building tents over roads to trap fumes and prevent nearby residents being subjected to emissions. The agency said it was working on materials that could absorb nitrogen dioxide. Cantilever barriers have been built on some Dutch roads to trap pollution. However, the cost was put at between €15 million and €70 million a kilometre.
