Default rear mudguards width

Hi all,

just a quick question about mudguards on rear of my trike,

I know the tyre has to be covered, if the mudguards fall short on the width by 6mm either side would they be classed as too short and the tyre is not covered for msva.

Thanks in advance

Dave

In MSVA the only checks on mudguards are checking for any sharp eges and ensuring they are secure.

The section on design and construction does state;

1. A design or construction feature or characteristic, causes, or is likely to
cause, a danger to the vehicle driver, passengers or to other road users.

Which the tester could use.

The legisaltion requiring mudguards is containd in the Construction and Use regs which can be used in road checks (ie the cops)

Clear as mud aint it?
