The governmen'st and Motability opertaions actual figures show that in 2010/11 the lastestr figures available, show that 800 customers were removed from the scheme for abuse and another 500 denied access to the scheme. A total of 1,200 customers out of 600,000 customers. Not exactly high abuse is it? 0.5%?
But those of us who do have access to the Higher Rate Motability Component of the DLA are probably more keen than you to remove the scrotes who cheat the system, along with those who cheat Benefits, drink-drive or theive. I would certainly and have done so, report any infraction of the Motability lease scheme.
You can do the same you know, IF you actually have a specific case, not a generalisation based upon what?
If you or anyone else knows of someone not in accordance with the contract they have signed with Motability Operations, then either fill in the form on this page http://www.motabilitycarscheme.co.uk/main.cfm?type=CMIS or ring up on 0845 456 4566 and ask for the misuse team, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
But before you do that please try and understand how the Motability car lease scheme works.
The car has to be used for the benefit of the disabled person, this can, quite rightly, in cases such as a child or partner, be used to get the father/mother/partner to work as the job is for the benefit of the disabled person. This is the same for school pickups, shopping holidays etc etc, but the underlying question is always Is it for the benefit of the disabled person?
You do not have to be able to drive to be in receipt of a Motability car, but in all cases, you are allowed two drivers, but they both have to be registerd to drive the vehicle and live within 5 miles of the disabled person.
How do you know that the Motability car lease is being abused?
a) are you sure in the first place that the car is actually a Motability lease scheme car?
Over 70% of those in recipt of the HRMC of the DLA do NOT use the Motability car lease scheme, they can use that money in anyway they see fit, some lease a car from another leasing company, otrhers buy a car themselves, pay towards Taxi fares, pay friends/Family/Relatives petrol money to do things for them.
When you see the car, how do you know its a Motability vehicle?
Have you any actual cases of misuse of the Motability car lease scheme? Or is it all Daily Mail nonsense you base your comments upon.
What IS your original comments based upon?
