Motor vehicles could be made to undergo stricter tests with the European Commission currently thinking of introducing a proposal that could see tougher technical tests conducted on cars and motorbikes during regular vehicle checkups.
"Five people die on Europe's roads every day in accidents linked to technical faults," said European Commission spokeswoman Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, announcing new rules Friday to toughen up and widen out testing regulations.

The EU executive will call for vehicles to undergo a first technical test after four years, with a second at six and yearly checks subsequently for vehicles over six years old.
