    Road Tax - Goverment petition.

    Dont Know If this has been done before but I got an email from a mate today so thought its worth a post.

    This is the biggest move to tax & infringe on privacy ever proposed in this Country!

    Best sell your fast car ASAP as it won¹t be worth buttons if this happens!

    No apologies for sending this on...This may not interest you and if it doesn't please simply delete it - if you're a motorist, read on and do your duty!

    It was stated on the news this morning (27th November 2006) one of the reasons this proposal has been suggested was to raise money for possible road building and improvements to existing roads. It should be noted that all the money currently collected by the DVLA for road fund licences, only 23% - 24% is actually spent on road building and improvements!

    The government's proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you having to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to use it. The tracking device will cost about £200 and in a recent study by the BBC the lowest monthly bill was £28 for a rural florist and £194 for a delivery driver. A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school paid £86 in one month. On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody will know where you are at all times. They will also know how fast you have been going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit you can expect an NIP with your monthly bill. If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website, sign up here http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/traveltax/

    Sorry to resurect this thread, but have just been sent the link again by a colleague - it seems that the petition nearly has enough names for it to carry weight (ie - they can't ignore it as a 'minor objection'). Sign it folks, it only takes 30 seconds, and could save you hundreds!!
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
