I sugest we scrap the collection of road tax and collect the missing income ont fuel duty – this passes the cost onto all users as those who do not tax their vehicle would still need fuel , so cannot escape the duty – also the more miles you drive the higher your cost which is a fairer system. It would also concentrate our minds on the real need for unnecessary journeys.
The Insurance /mot document relating to this vehicle should be displayed on the windscreen, failure to do so would alert the authorities of possible no -insurance, and unsuitable vehicles on the road, a far worse crime than no licence duty.
Why does this idea matter?
Society needs to stop those who avoid their responsibility – many who avoid Road Tax also do not have insurance or mots and drive illegally joining the lives of others. When caught – they may have points on their licence, which they just continue to ignore and repeat the offences
