Charge the motorist for car ownership according to the amount of fuel he uses.

Comment 22nd July 2010

Abolish the Road Tax and use Fuel Tax instead to tax car ownership.

Why does this matter?


The amount of fuel used is the defining factor for the greenhouse gas causes.

Also the weight of the car, which causes road wear (and thus public cost related to building & repairing roads) also increase fuel consumption because weight is proportional to the power needed to move the car and thus fuel use.


Car tax will thus be directed towards the people who use the roads and not indiscriminately towards those, for example, who drive little and favour a green transport when they do travel during the week, but want/need a car for weekend driving.


There will be less cost to the Government by not needing to collect and administer the Road Tax; the car disc can last for the ownership of the car.
