Not really as an mot wont test to see if brakes are badly fitted and could fail it only means they worked fine when tested and what happens if tested and a day later modified parts fitted??
Afte reading about this incident I now know of two failures, this one and one mentioned on another forum that happened in the early 90's so not exactly commonplace.
Standard or modified parts could fail at ANY time, as others have said this is a knee **** reaction to a single incident.
