Car mobility allowance should be means tested

2 Comments 28th August 2010

Car mobility allowance should be means tested.  Example, a person with a good pension living in property worth around a million pounds whose partner has never driven has a good pension but has mobility issues should not automatically qualify for a mobility car.

Why does this matter?

PEOPLE WITH REAL NEED ARE BEING PENALISED  IN MY BOROUGH WHILST SOMEONE PERFECTLY WELL OFF, BUT WHO CAN PLAY THE SYSTEM BENEFITS FROM STATE AID. I WOULD RATHER HELP GOES TO THE NEEDY THAN THE GREEDY.

    means testing mobility cars is a good idea if some one can put 9000 pounds down to up grade to a bigger car they dont need help do they only people getting help from the goverment are the car dealers. i see this all day working in a dealership its a standing joke

    The non greedy average tax payer is being taken for a ride!,Motability is paid for by benefit allowance,benefits are for people in need ,not for people with healthy bank accounts.It is also a fact that some people with motability cars also have more than one car per household.My neighbour has two cars ,one is motability ,he uses his motability car to go on holiday trips !My wife and I are both well over 75 with a 22 year old car which has to be serviced insured and used on a daily basis,we are thankfully fit enough although claiming benefits would be an absolute last resort .
