Repeal the motorcycle parking tax

Comment 18th July 2010

Westminster council are charging motorcycles to park. Why? To scam more money out of minority groups, that's why.

They say they're concerned about air quality and congestion, but drive away the only viable transport group that can improve both. And they're using the money from motorcycle parking (over £4 million so far) to build…more car parking spaces.

Why does this matter?

If Westminster council are allowed to continue charging motorcycles for parking (something you can only do with a credit/debit card and a mobile phone – there's no cash payment option) then every council in the country will follow suit. While car parking charges will continue to increase, and privately run parking control companies continue to make a healthy profit.

And don't worry, cyclists, there are already plans afoot to start charging you…
