    Angry Car Tax, Anyone else pi55ed?

    Is it just me or does the Car tax rules get more anoying every year?

    Im all for being greener etc but motorists are always the first to suffer.

    What really anoys me is the fact that for say if you had the same car on an 01 plate you could be paying less for the same car on 02 plate with same emissions etc.

    And having older cars exempt etc etc Is it just me or does this all seem a bit mad???

    I drive a y plate 1.7 diesel astra and I have just paid £66 for 6 months tax. From what i gather if the car had been a year younger or a year older I would have had to pay more tax for it. Not sure why but I think I got a good one.

    I also drive two tax exempt landrovers , one is a Series One and one is a SII and the only reason I dont have a S3 is that most of them are taxable and I begrudge paying the government any money .

    Mz-dust, have edited your post for the reason given

    Know what you mean MCJM, if my car was 6 months older the tax would be a fair bit cheaper on it.

    The point im getting at is the government are trying to say oh the reason why the tax is the way it is is for the 'enviroment' If that statment was true the pre 2001 cars which throw out heaps of emisions should be getting charged the same!!

    Like alot of things with the government it makes no sense to me.

    And people who only cycle, wheres their tax, they use the road too, I want to know why there are so many cycle lanes taking up half the main roads if im the one paying the road tax!!! Arghhhh!!! Again im all for tree huging but cant it be done in a more sensible way!!
