The New Labour government put punitive road taxation on all 4×4 wheel drive vehicles.
Why does this idea matter?
Not all 4×4 wheel drive vehicles are large gas guzzlers, a Suzuki Jeep for instance.
Anyway there are plenty of vehicles with large engines that consume more fuel than a 4×4.
The legislation as it stands is just unjust and unfair. While I agree that a large 4×4 is not necessary for the average school run, perhaps we should appeal to people's sense of right and wrong rather than applying punitive taxation.
4×4 vehicles do have their uses in certain environments and at the end of the day there must be individual Freedom of Choice in these matters.
