I was recently pleased to see that the local council have cracked down on cars without valid road tax. Seen quite a few with clamps on and big red stickers on the windscreen. I was having a general chat with the folks one evening about this when my old dear said she wouldn't be adverse to the gov scrapping the current way we buy our road tax, and putting the tax on petrol.
This then raised a whole host of questions about why it would be a good idea and a bad idea.
For one it would mean that NO-BODY could avoid paying road tax.
But then it would be easier for tea-leafs to change the identity of a car,
also, not all fuel is used for powering vehicles etc.
I think it is a good idea that could work with a few adjustments.
I thought I’d put this up here to see what everyone else has to say about it.
