Dizzy has obtained some more data about the number of registered keeper enquiries to the DVLA.
Let's have an example of a beneficial use of this service. Personal Injury Solicitor has case of man and motorbike being cut up and seriously mashed by road hog. Witnesses all hand details to the dazed biker and give only old fashioned looks to the lunatic automobilist. The motor is undamaged. There is no trail of an insurance claim. The solicitor uses the DVLA service paying a cost recovery fee and is able to pursue the maniac.
There is a small chance that - since Dizzy has revealled that few if any records kept of disclosures and no registration - this service might be used by identity thieves to get pieces in the jigsaw needed to get credit.
However, balancing the benefits with the disbenefits surely the benefits win hands down? Introducing a tracking system and registration of all enquirers might stem the floodgates Dizzy and his parliamentary accomplices have opened. But that could get up their noses even more and inevitably lead to an increase in the costs that must be recovered.
Story for images: biker was in this case responsible.
CLARIFICATION: The Data is Dizzy "three comments in three minutes" Thinks' not the governments; though I'm not sure LoL said it was theirs?
