ANPR cameras on cars, vans, roadsides are the new road tax checkers for British roads now
When it was announced months ago that on 1st October this year, the paper road tax would be abolished, most people thought, well, about time. It’s been around for 93 years, after all.
When the thing got underway, many will have been astonished that the DVLA hadn’t prepared enough in advance to stop their website crashing on Day One with drivers asking questions.
But they didn’t prepare. The result was chaos.
They claimed 6000 people a minute were renewing and thousands wanted information. As Edmund King, AA President said, ‘it’s ironic that in this digital age the site goes down on the first day of the electronic system.’
Most website designers argue that nowadays it is easy to scale up or down a site’s traffic flow if the site is well and properly designed!! They should have gone to Dessol!
