Stop Impounding Cars with Marginally Out of Date Road Tax

Stop Impounding Cars with Marginally Out of Date Road Tax

Only impound for real safety reasons – and dispense with virtually all impounders (who are probably contractors on an incentive scheme to cause disproportionate misery anyway). If you must have roadtax collect it some other way – and inextremis clamp initially not impound. 

Spur for writing – On 30/6/10 a smallish car (not ours) was taken away from outside our house because it only had an "0510" tax disc.

PS why does one have to register to get on this site – just more bureaucracy. What did that cost?

Why does this matter?

This is Big Brother gone mad and a huge waste of money / totally disproportionate response.

Say the tax was £200 – and 30 days overdue. How dare some jobsworth so inconvenience the car owner – who doubtless pays many times more income tax, VAT etc per year / month.

Besides the waste of time & money involved this is governing against people not for people.
