Why the UK is banning the use of bacc seat covers
Posted On August 7, 2021
The British government is banning all seats in motor vehicles, with all seats designed to fit in the car being banned in some cases.
The government says seats that don’t comply with its requirements will be made to comply with the law.
The new ban comes amid increasing concerns over safety and pollution caused by a growing number of new passenger cars being built.
The British government said the move would prevent accidents, including those involving people on the road.
“This new policy will prevent serious injuries and fatalities by reducing the number of people who can be seriously injured or killed in a crash and reduce the risk of fatalities in motor vehicle accidents,” a spokeswoman said.
“The Government also recognises that there is an urgent need to reduce air pollution and we will continue to review and reform our vehicle design guidelines to achieve these goals.”
The UK’s transport secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, said the decision was a “good first step” but “more must be done” to improve air quality.
“We know that air pollution is a significant factor in the premature death and illness of so many people,” he said.
“We need to ensure that our roads are safe for all road users and that we keep an eye on air quality.”

The system will require manufacturers to submit a minimum of two-thirds of their vehicles to the system and the government says that will help to reduce carbon emissions.
