  • UK Car Owners Or Anyone Who Intends To Buy A Car In The Future...

    You might not of heard about this because I think the government tried to keep it hush hush.

    Basically... they government wants to charge MORE road tax for the more you drive.

    Basically you're going to have to buy a tracking device which goes in your car, then you get a bill at the end of the month for the tax you owe, the more you've driven during the month the more you'll pay.

    Check this report on the BBC... it explains it a little better.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6352957.stm

    Their is an online petition on the Downing Street website to reconsider this, it's definetly worth reading up on this and signing the petition.

    That is unless you want to pay more road tax?



    ONLINE PETITION: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/traveltax/

    But I'm the only one can truely say I dealt with Shady's shit!

      More information...


      "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 mother 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, in time you can probably expect a Notice of Intended Prosecution with your monthly bill."

            Forget that, people who can't drive should be charged MORE taxes.

            Their a danger to everybody else.

              I might be totally alone in this but is it such a bad thing. I mean the there's far too many cars on the road. Only thing i object to is that we'd have to buy the tracking devices. Then there's the issue of them knowing where you are the whole time which sucks a bit. Still i do feel you should pay more road tax based on how much you drive

                When the government can offer an amazingly good transport system NATIONWIDE, then they can start rolling out these ridiculous ideas.. until then, they need to wise up. This is absurd

                  They should invest the money more wisely into something else... like... oh I don't know an effective public transport system.

                              Actually that's a great shout. I didn't really think enough about the idea before i posted. Thinking about it the cost of public transport is a joke, let alone the quality of the service. If i were to have to go to birmingham in the morning(before 9) it costs 60 on the train for a direct journey of roughly 60 miles. If i were to drive it would take me less time probably and cost me 10 petrol at most, plus possibly a little of parking money.
                              Having paid that 60 you're in no way guaranteed a seat and there is a very real chance you'll have to stand most if not all the journey. I haven't even mentioned the likelihood of the train being on time. Thank god when i've had to go to Birmingham for work i've had it paid for me!

                              All in all my first post was fucking stupid, like most things i say and more importantly like this idea. I officially stand corrected!

                              Correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't that happen. The more CO2 omissions a car has the higher the road tax. Which is pretty much more expensive cars paying more.
                              Damn though, i'd love an audi A3. Nice cars, especially in black
