    First would be to stop using NPR.
    Insurance write-offs should be crushed by the insurers.

    I think it would very difficult and expensive to put a stop on the whole scam. Remember when the Mileage Indicator went Digital, they said that would stop the crooks from turning the mileage back?

    Well, it didn't, they
    learned how to hook it up to a computer and do it that way.

    NO NO NO. They are only Right-offs because the Insurance companies regard them as being "beyond economical repair" completely different from a "Right-off"

    I do not see how it is relevant, the present system is wide open to abuse, as we know, what the problem with scrapping a car that 'might' have been saved. It is basically junk (expensive junk yes); it was almost certainly junk the day it left the assembly line.

    No, I do not agrre with you. I think that you misunderstand the reasons why Insurance companies write off "repairable" cars.

    I would agree with your sentiments on write-offs but the problem is there is no reliable system to vet the re-claimed cars before they go back on the road. I agree that an engineer checking cars during repairs and on completion would do the trick, but we are back to cost again. Therefore, I come to the conclusion rather than the insurers taking no responsibility for written-off cars they should actually dispose of them. Interestingly, this should reduce the number of written-of cars (written-off due to cost of repair), as writing a car off would cost them money.
