Bloody car tax.

Daylight robbery.

£270 for a year and potholes the size of my head on our roads. :confuddled:

GRUMP.

That is all.

The corsa is only £100 but i'll make up for it when I replace the disco with a newer landrover as i'll be in the guzzler tax bracket unless I can find somewhere nearby that does the diesel LPG modification as that halves the emissions

Get rid of road tax and add the tax onto fuel, if you drive 1000 miles a year you don't wear the roads out, if you drive 100'000 miles a year you do.

It would be nice if they did that and it worked out fairly, but they'd just use it to add an increase in tax. Also, it would put the price of everything up by adding to transportation costs (or the transport companies would claim it put the price up). It would be good if they had a reduced rate for cars that do under 5k a year though, weekend toys/granny cars etc.

but isn't the road fund licence already on a sliding scale?
chicken chaser 50cc's pay next to nothing, and articulated lorries pay a rediculous amout?
http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Motoring/Ow ... G_10012524
despite it being the most obvious and fair way to pay for the upkeep of our road system, we all know kernow is right. don't you remember the massive fit the press et all had when petrol reached £1 per litre? where is that outrage now it's well over £1.30? it's got nothing to do with funding the roads. they make it up as they go along.
if you think about it too much you'll just get mad about it and enjoy your life a lot less. struggle on and have as much fun as you can on a daily basis.

Yes, there is a sliding scale, but if you look at the light goods vehicles (transits, transporters etc, all the stuff that couriers use) the tax is pretty reasonable over a year, compared to the mileage they do. If you look at this one, it shows the rates for HGVs http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/index/inform ... hicles.htm and you can see that they only pay £165 a year (£410 for over 25000kg). Compared to the mileage and amount of fuel they use, that seems like a bargain to me. If they had to pay based on fuel used, it would be in the thousands per year, pushing up prices to the end consumer
